2014 Scorecard Vote
Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) offered an amendment to H.R. 3826, the Electricity Security and Affordability Act, which would require Congress to accept the scientific findings that man-made carbon pollution contributes to climate change and that climate change has a wide range of negative effects. 2014 was the hottest year on record and communities across the U.S. are already feeling the impacts of climate change, ranging from costly droughts to deadly forest fires to more severe storms. On March 6, the Schakowsky amendment was rejected 190-221 (House roll call vote 103). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
