2018 Scorecard Vote
Representative Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) sponsored H.R. 3, the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act, also known as the rescission package, which would cut funding for several programs that protect our environment and public health. H.R. 3 would slash programs that promote needed investments in clean energy and conservation, as well as $16 million from the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Additionally, this package proposed by the Trump administration irresponsibly rescinds funding levels agreed upon through Congress, and much of the funding that H.R. 3 would cut have been identified for future use and could continue to support projects and communities across the country. On June 20, 2018, the Senate rejected a motion to proceed to H.R. 3 by a vote of 48-50 (Senate roll call vote 134). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
