They don’t fix HR 1, but These Amendments Could Help Protect Appalachia

Appalachian Voices strongly supports the following amendments to HR 1:

5 (Tonko)
Amendment No. 5: Page 276, beginning on line 4, strike section 1746.

65 (Polis):
Amendment No. 65: Page 276, line 11, insert “, except for expenditures that the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency determines to be necessary to protect the public health or prevent severe environmental degradation” after “climate change”.

66 (Polis):
Amendment No. 66: Page 276, line 8, insert “or other authorities under the Clean Air Act that the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency determines to be necessary to protect the public health or prevent severe environmental degradation” after “Clean Air Act”.

460 (Holt).
Amendment No. 460: Page 276, beginning on line 4, strike section 1746.

The House has yet to vote on these or any of the coal lobby’s favored amendments.
