2022 Scorecard Vote

Undermining Bedrock Environmental Statutes
Senate Roll Call Vote 300
Issues: Dirty Energy, Environmental Justice, Clean Air and Clean Water, Other

Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) sponsored an amendment to H.R. 5376, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022, that would significantly undercut and weaken multiple bedrock environmental laws, including the National Environmental Policy Act, Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and the Endangered Species Act. In effect, the amendment would expedite permitting for oil and gas and other polluting projects, while threatening the health and safety of frontline communities and the environment. On August 7, the Senate rejected the Capito amendment by a vote of 49-50 (Senate roll call vote 300). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
