2019 Scorecard Vote
Representative Mullin (R-OK) offered amendment #147 to H.R. 3055, the Commerce, Justice, Science, Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, Interior, Environment, Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Act, 2020, which would have blocked the enforcement of rules for methane emissions from oil and gas operations. Methane is more than 84 times more powerful than carbon dioxide as a climate pollutant. 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. 3055 is a strong rebuke of the Trump Administration’s denial of the climate crisis, efforts to undermine progress on clean energy solutions, and ill-conceived decisions to double down on dirty fossil fuels. On June 20, the House rejected the Mullin amendment by a vote of 191-241 (House roll call vote 385). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
