2019 Scorecard Vote
Representative Jeff Duncan (R-SC) offered an amendment to H.R. 3055, an appropriations bill funding various government agencies, which would have stopped enforcement of the Clean Power Plan, thus attacking carbon pollution standards for existing power plants and new power plants. Climate change is already having devastating impacts on communities across the country. More extreme storms, record-breaking floods, and raging wildfires are hurting our families and devastating communities, and these impacts and the burden of toxic pollution hit lower income, communities of color, and Indigenous peoples first and worst. On June 20, the House rejected the Duncan amendment by a vote of 192-240 (House roll call vote 381). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
