2019 Scorecard Vote
Representative Mullin (R-OK) offered an amendment to H.R. 2740, the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, Defense, State, Foreign Operations, and Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act, 2020, which would have blocked the use of the most up-to-date Social Cost of Carbon during federal agency rulemaking. Climate change is already having devastating impacts on communities across the country and the costs are piling up. More extreme storms, record-breaking floods, and raging wildfires are hurting our families and devastating communities, and these impacts and the burden of toxic pollution hit lower income, communities of color, and Indigenous peoples first and worst. Unamended, H.R. 2740 is a strong rebuke of the Trump Administration’s denial of the climate crisis, efforts to undermine progress, and ill-conceived decision to become the only country in the world to reject the landmark Paris Climate Agreement. On June 19, the House rejected the Mullin amendment by a vote of 186-248 (House roll call vote 362). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
