HR 3354 Funding for the EPA Criminal Enforcement Division (Roll Call 482)
The Congressman Gary Palmer (R-AL, 100% ACU LIFE) amendment to the Department of the Interior Appropriations bill prohibits funding for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Criminal Enforcement Division. The ACU Foundation’s Center for Criminal Justice Reform engages heavily on issues such as this leading to over-criminalization. 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 September 8, 2017 by a vote of 178-227.
