2018 Scorecard Vote
Representative Bill Johnson (R-OH) sponsored H.R. 4606, the Ensuring Small Scale LNG Certainty and Access Act, which would jeopardize the health of our air, water, climate, and communities by incentivizing more oil and natural gas drilling. This bill would declare that all low-volume natural gas exports or imports are in the public interest and would undermine the National Environmental Policy Act process, reducing the ability of communities directly impacted by these liquified natural gas projects to have a meaningful voice in the review process. On September 6, the House approved H.R. 4606 by a vote of 260-146 (House roll call vote 392). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE. The Senate took no action on this legislation.
