1995 Scorecard Vote
The euphemistically-titled Job Creation and Wage Enhancement Act, H.R. 9, is one of the most comprehensive vehicles for legislating the "Contract with America." The bill, sponsored by Bill Archer (R-TX), chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, combines two major elements of the Republican agenda -- "takings" and "regulatory reform" -- as well as other anti-environmental measures, to override 25 years of environmental protection. In addition to passing bills separately to address each of these issues, on March 3, 1995, the House adopted the package bill 277 - 141. NO is the pro-environment vote.
