Anti-Environment Record of the U.S. House of Representatives, 112th Congress: Interim Update: Congressional Report
Henry A. Waxman (ed); Ed Markey (ed)
This report provides an analysis of the anti-environment record of the U.S. House of Representatives in the 112th Congress. In 2011 and in the first half of 2012, the Republican-controlled House voted 247 times to dismantle environmental and public health protections. The report found that the House averaged one anti-environmental vote for every day the House was in session in 2011 and in the first half of 2012. Nearly one in five of the 1,100 legislative roll call votes thus far this Congress äóñ- 19% äóñ- were votes to undermine environmental protection. The report also found that the oil and gas industry has been the largest beneficiary of this anti-environment record in the House, which has voted 109 times on legislation that would enrich the oil and gas industry. This includes 45 votes to weaken environmental, public health, and safety requirements applicable to the oil industry, 38 votes to prevent deployment of clean energy alternatives, and 12 votes to expedite review of the Keystone XL pipeline. This is a print on demand report.
