The Chesapeake Bay

House Roll Call No. 120
112nd Congress, 1st Session

Agreed to: 230-195 (see complete tally)

Representative Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) offered this amendment to H.R. 1, the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act of 2011, to block efforts to continue the clean-up of the treasured Chesapeake Bay.  It would prohibit funding to implement measures that limit the amount of allowable pollution in waters that wind up in the bay.  On February 18, the House adopted the Goodlatte amendment by a vote of 230-195 (House roll call vote 120).  NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.  Fortunately, the language in this amendment was not included in the compromise appropriations bill that funded the government through the end of FY11, H.R. 1473, which the president signed into law on April 15.
