2020 Scorecard Vote
Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) offered an amendment to H.R. 2, the Moving Forward Act, which would invest $4.5 billion per year for five years to fully replace lead service lines that provide drinking water to communities across the nation. The funding would prioritize disadvantaged and environmental justice communities, who disproportionately have lead service lines in their homes. No level of lead is safe, and lead in drinking water can particularly harm the developing brains of children. On July 1, the House approved the Tlaib amendment by a vote of 240-181 (House roll call vote 136). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE. The House approved H.R. 2 on July 1, but the Senate took no action on this legislation.
