H.R. 6. Energy Plan/Passage of a Bill to Provide Tax Breaks to Energy Companies and Allow Oil Drilling in the Pristine Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
house Roll Call 145     Apr 11, 2003
Progressive Position:
Nay
Progressive Result:
Loss

The subject of this vote was final passage of energy legislation that would overhaul the nation's energy policies. Specifically, the bill would restructure the electricity-production system, allow oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), and provide $18.7 billion in tax breaks for energy-producing companies. Progressives opposed final passage of the energy plan because of its emphasis on fossil fuel rather than renewable energy production. Moreover, the plan would allow oil-companies to drill in Alaska's ANWR, a pristine wildlife sanctuary, which had definite potential to cause environmental degradation as a result of the drilling operations. The energy plan was adopted on a 247-175 vote in favor of the legislation.
