2020 Scorecard Vote
Chair Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) sponsored H.R. 8015, the Delivering for America Act, which would provide $25 billion in emergency appropriations, block operational changes at the U.S. Postal Service that threaten to politicize mail delivery, and treat election ballots as first class mail. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many voters were unable to safely cast their ballots in person, and instead relied on voting by mail. However, Postmaster DeJoy took partisan actions that hampered timely mail delivery. Efforts to undermine or delay mail-in voting threaten participation in our democracy. On August 22, the House approved H.R. 8015 by a vote of 257-150 (House roll call vote 182). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE. The Senate took no action on this legislation.
