2019 Scorecard Vote
Representative Paul Gosar (R-AZ) offered an amendment to H.R. 3055, an appropriations bill funding various government agencies, which would have prohibited the EPA from recognizing the health and environmental dangers of carbon dioxide and blocked implementation of standards to reduce carbon pollution. Climate change is already having devastating impacts on communities across the country and the costs are piling up. 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 Gosar amendment by a vote of 178-254 (House roll call vote 383). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
