2021 Recent Vote
Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) sponsored S. Con. Res. 14, the FY2022 budget resolution. Passage of the budget resolution sets in motion the legislative procedure Congress will use to pass President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda, a once-in-a-generation opportunity to take action to tackle the climate crisis in a way that addresses racial and economic inequality and creates millions of jobs. These investments set the US on a path to cutting carbon pollution by at least half by 2030 and 100% carbon-free energy powering our electricity grid and new cars, buses, and buildings by 2035, while delivering at least 40% of investment benefits to communities of color and low-income communities that have borne the brunt of fossil fuel pollution. On August 11, the Senate approved S. Con. Res. 14 by a vote of 50-49 (Senate roll call vote 357). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
