2018 Scorecard Vote
Representative Diana DeGette (D-CO) offered an amendment to H.R. 4606, the Ensuring Small Scale LNG Certainty and Access Act, which would require liquefied natural gas export applications to demonstrate that the natural gas was produced in a manner that minimized dangerous methane emissions. These emissions threaten public health and the environment, and low-cost technologies to reduce methane pollution are readily available and would save taxpayer resources. On September 6, the House rejected the DeGette amendment by a vote of 195-210 (House roll call vote 390). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
