2018 Scorecard Vote
Representative Paul Gosar (R-AZ) offered an amendment to H.R. 5895, the Energy and Water, Legislative Branch, and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act, 2019. This amendment would eliminate funding for the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), which would undermine clean energy innovations that lower costs, create jobs, and reduce pollution. The government is the largest source of energy research funding, and DOE research and development investments have led to breakthroughs in technology on a range of clean energy issues. On June 7, the House rejected the Gosar amendment by a vote of 123-295 (House roll call vote 246). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
