Capito of West Virginia Amendment
On Agreeing to the Amendment
House Roll Call No. 16
110th Congress, 2nd Session

Failed: 169-240 (see complete tally)
Capito amendment (No. 7 printed in H. Rept. 110-509) that sought to substitute the green building requirement, which is part of the mandatory core component of the underlying bill, with a provision that includes green building as part of the mandatory graded section. It also sought to strike references in the bill to specific green building standards and instead require the Secretary of HUD to select a rating system, standard, or code for green buildings. This standard would have met certain criteria and the Secretary would have conducted a study every 5 years to evaluate and compare third party green building standards to see if they meet the criteria (by a recorded vote of 169 ayes to 240 noes, Roll No. 16).
