Pollution Control
House Roll Call Vote 375
Issue: Water

HR 11896. The vote is on the Reuss amendment to set deadlines requiring industries to use the "best available pollution control technology" by 1981, and reaffirming the goal of "zero discharge" of pollutants by 1985. The Committee bill required a two-year study by the National Academy of Sciences before congressional enactment of these standards at some uncertain future date. (Rejected 140-249; March 28, 1972. "Yes" is the correct vote.)
