2022 Scorecard Vote
Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) sponsored an amendment to H.R. 5376, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022, to replace the funding for the Office of the Chief Readiness Support Officer with a $500 million appropriation for fencing and barriers along the U.S. southern border. This amendment would have continued to waste taxpayer dollars on a hateful and harmful border wall. It would have exacerbated damage to border communities and the environment they depend on, which includes some of the most fragile and sensitive public lands in the U.S., habitat for imperiled species, and vital migration routes for wildlife. On August 7, the Senate rejected the Sullivan amendment by a vote of 50-50 (Senate roll call vote 320). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
