HR 5895 Prohibiting Funding for the Justification of a Carbon Tax. (Roll Call 253)
The Gohmert (R-TX, ACUF Lifetime 94.5%) amendment to the energy and water appropriations bill prevents any funds from being used to prepare, propose or promulgate any regulation or guidance related to the "social cost of carbon," or the unforeseen risks predicted by proponents of climate change, including rising health care costs, destruction of property and reduced tourism. ACU opposes the misuse of taxpayer funds to advance a politicized global warming agenda and supported this amendment. The House passed the amendment on June 8, 2018 by a vote of 212-201.
