Vote Description

S 2262 (Roll Call 142) Government Energy Standards



This bill would have tasked the Obama Administration to create new energy standards for buildings and then use taxpayer funds to promote them. It also created new subsidies for electric motor controls and transformers approved by the government. ACU opposes the expansion of these government programs and opposed this bill and the motion to invoke cloture (limiting debate). The Senate defeated the motion to invoke cloture on May 12, 2014 by a vote of 55-35 (60 votes were needed to pass)
