The Senate considered en bloc amendment 5487 to H.R. 5376, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022, that included  anti-environment amendments from Senators John Barrasso (R-WY), Steve Daines (R-MT), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Rob Portman (R-OH). These amendments would strike royalty rates for oil and gas extracted from public lands and waters, drastically limit consumer and vehicle eligibility for the clean vehicle tax credits, cut funding for recovery from climate disasters, exempt oil, gas, and coal companies from the newly created corporate minimum tax, and cut assistance to states to modernize their energy codes and lower families’ utility bills. On August 7, the Senate rejected en bloc amendment 5487 by a vote of 50-50 (Senate roll call vote 321). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
