NEPA Weakening
House Roll Call Vote 376
Issues: Water, Other

HR 11896. The bill set up a permit program for industries that discharge pollutants. But it weakened the National Environmental Policy Act by saying that the Act did not apply to regulatory decisions regarding the granting of permits to industries. The vote is on Rep. Bella Abzug's amendment to delete the provisions weakening the NEPA. (Rejected 125-268; March 28, 1972; "Yes" is the correct vote.)
