2018 Scorecard Vote
Representative Virginia Foxx (R-NC) sponsored H.R. 50, the Unfunded Mandates Information and Transparency Act of 2017, which would make it more difficult for agencies to implement laws that are designed to protect our air and water and ensure safe food, products, and workplaces. H.R. 50 would also undermine the autonomy of independent regulatory agencies by making them subject to regulatory review by the White House’s Office of Management and Budget. H.R. 50 would decrease transparency in the rulemaking process and give industry a clear advantage over public health and safety. On July 13, the House approved H.R. 50 by a vote of 230-168 (House roll call vote 328). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE. The Senate took no action on this legislation.
