Amendments Opposing:

Moran (D-VA)  Amendment No. 1 – Page 11, Line 8 – Strikes Sec. 107. Sec. 107 prevents the corps of Engineers from updating guidance concerning federal jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act.

LLPH Response: Giving power to bureaucrats not confirmed or elected by the people is ridiculous. The Corps of Engineers should not be given more power to regulate, and so we support this section of the bill which limits them and oppose this amendment. We may score the recorded vote in our scorecard. 

Moran (D-VA)  Amendment No. 2 – Page 13, Line 1 – Strikes Sec. 112. Sec. 112 prevents the Corps of Engineers from changing the definitions of “fill material” or “discharge fill material” under the Clean Water Act.

LLPH Response: Same as above. Giving power to unelected bureaucrats in the Corps of Engineers to regulate and define is unconstitutional. We oppose this amendment and may consider scoring it in our scorecard.

Broun (R-GA) – Page 22, Line 5 – Reduces Renewable Energy, Energy Reliability, and Efficiency by $9.8 million and transfers the same amount to the Spending Reduction Account.

LLPH Response: Strongly support this amendment. We will definitely score the recorded vote of this amendment because it cuts an extremely wasteful program and puts the amount ($9.8 million) in debt reduction. We urge a yes vote. 

Broun Amendment: An amendment to reduce the Renewable Energy, Energy Reliability, and Efficiency account by 4,751,000 and apply the savings to the spending reduction account.

LLPH Response: Strongly support this amendment. We will definitely score the recorded vote of this amendment because it cuts an extremely wasteful program and puts the amount ($4.75 million) in debt reduction. We urge a yes vote. 

These four votes could be scored in our scorecard.
