2020 Recent Vote
Representative Nita Lowey (D-NY) sponsored H.R. 5687, the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief and Puerto Rico Disaster Tax Relief Act, 2020. This bill would provide much needed funding to Puerto Rico to recover and rebuild from a series of earthquakes. Families in Puerto Rico are still suffering, and some infrastructure has yet to be rebuilt, from the severe damage done to their communities by Hurricane Irma and Maria in 2017, which were likely made more damaging by climate change. On February 7, the House approved H.R. 5687 by a vote of 237-161 (House roll call vote 54). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
