H.R. 6. Energy Plan/Vote to Recommit to Committee a Bill to Provide Tax Breaks to Energy Companies and Allow Oil Drilling in the Pristine Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
house Roll Call 144     Apr 11, 2003
Progressive Position:
Yea
Progressive Result:
Loss

House rules allow the minority party to offer a motion to recommit legislation for further committee consideration which, if passed, is usually a death blow to the bill; Congressman Dingell (D-MI) offered the recommit motion to the energy plan that would have instructed the committee reporting the legislation to strike a provision in the energy plan that would allow applicants for a license to build a hydroelectric facility alternative means of environmental protection. Progressives supported Dingell's instructions to recommit the energy bill as a way to insure that current laws protecting fish and wildlife are not circumvented by new proposals offered by applicants seeking to build a hydroelectric facility. More generally, progressives supported the recommit motion based on their objections to provisions in the bill that would allow oil-drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. They also favored investments in renewable energy sources which are not included in the energy bill. The motion to recommit was defeated on a 171-250 vote.
