2019 Scorecard Vote
Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan (D-MP) sponsored H.R. 737, the Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act of 2019, which would end all imports, exports, trade, distribution, and possession for commercial purposes of shark fins and products containing shark fins in the United States and impose a fine of up to $100,000 for violations. The passage of this bill is a victory for the protection of sharks and our marine ecosystems. On November 20, the House approved H.R. 737 by a vote of 310-107 (House roll call vote 634). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE. The Senate took no action on this legislation.
