2018 Scorecard Vote
Representative Diana DeGette (D-CO) offered an amendment to H.R. 4606, the Ensuring Small Scale LNG Certainty and Access Act, which would require Liquefied Natural Gas export applications to demonstrate that the natural gas was produced in a manner that minimized dangerous methane emissions. Low cost technologies are readily-available and should be used by any energy exporter to reduce methane pollution that threatens public health and the environment and wastes a taxpayer resource. On September 6, the House rejected the DeGette amendment by a vote of 195-210 (House roll call vote 390). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
