1977 Scorecard Vote

Clean Air Act II
House Roll Call Vote 266
Issues: Transportation, Air

(H.R. 6161): The vote is on the Preyer substitute for the Dingell amendment (see vote 6) to delay auto emissions compliance schedules one year but to retain the stiff nitrogen oxide standards (.4 grams per mile) and the warranties for emission control devices, assembly line testing requirements and inspection and maintenance regulations for auto emissions in Title II. Since there was no chance of Title II passing intact, this amendment was designed to avoid wholesale destruction of a major part of the Clean Air Act by the Dingell amendment. It allows the auto industry more time to meet emission standards without weakening those standards. Rejected 189-202. May 26, 1977. YES is the correct vote.
