H.R. 5538 Palmer Amendment EPA’s Criminal Enforcement Division (Roll Call 453)
The Congressman Gary Palmer (R-AL-06) amendment to the Department of the Interior Appropriations bill prohibits funding for the Environmental Protection Agency's Criminal Enforcement Division. ACU opposes the EPA's misuse of this division, which has conducted armed raids of the Gibson Guitar Company with no charges forthcoming, and supported this amendment. The House defeated the amendment on July 13, 2016 by a vote of 195-223.
