Assault on the Anti-Corruption Rule for Fossil Fuel Companies (CRA)
Senado Votación Nominal 51
Tema: Sustancias Tóxicas/Derecho a la Información, Energía Sucia

Representative Bill Huizenga (R-MI) sponsored H.J. Res. 41, the Congressional Review Act “Resolution of Disapproval” of the Security and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) rule requiring fossil fuel companies to publicly disclose payments to governments in exchange for oil, gas, and minerals. This rule helped bring transparency to the flow of money between fossil fuel companies on the U.S. stock exchanges and U.S. and foreign governments, deterring corruption and mismanagement among all parties. This use of the Congressional Review Act, an extreme legislative tool, would not only overturn the current rule, but would prohibit the SEC from ever issuing "substantially similar" regulations in the future. Following its passage in the House, on February 3, the Senate approved H.J. Res. 41 by a vote of 52-47 (Senate roll call vote 51). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE. President Trump signed H.J. Res. 41 into law on February 14.
