New Report Details 223 House Votes against Clean Energy, for Fossil Fuels
WASHINGTON (October 9, 2012) – A new report details the 223 votes the House of Representatives has cast over the last two years to undercut wind, solar and energy efficiency and provide special favors to the fossil fuel industry. The report, released by the Democratic staff of the Natural Resources Committee, at the direction of Ranking Member Ed Markey (D-Mass.), provides a comprehensive view of the extreme ideological leanings on energy from the most do-nothing Congress in history.
The report is available HERE and includes descriptions of all votes, including topic-by-topic breakdowns. The report builds on an earlier report written for Reps. Markey and Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.) that detailed and described all of the anti-environment votes taken by House Republicans to date in this Congress, which is available HERE.
