Issues: Dirty Energy, Drilling

Senator Mike Braun (R-IN) sponsored an amendment to S. Con. Res. 5, the Fiscal Year 2021 Budget Resolution, which would prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) from proposing rules or guidance that would ban fracking, a destructive process of oil and gas drilling, in the United States -- an authority that the EPA and CEQ do not currently have. This was a symbolic amendment, demonstrating a desire to keep us addicted to fossil fuels. On February 4, the Senate approved the Braun amendment by a vote of 57-43 (Senate roll call vote 28). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.The Braun amendment was not included in the final S. Con. Res.5, which was approved by the House on February 5.
