Scored vote

Scorecard: League of Conservation Voters 2008 Senate Scorecard

Org. position: Nay

Description:

"In 1981, Congress acted to protect America’s shores, beaches, and marine ecosystems by adopting a moratorium on oil and gas development in coastal waters. Congress has continued this protection every year since then. During Senate consideration of the Fiscal 2009 budget resolution, Senator David Vitter (R-LA) offered a motion to instruct conferees to insist that conference report language be adjusted to allow governors, with the concurrence of their state legislatures, to petition for allowing increased drilling along their beaches and shorelines. The moratorium on offshore drilling was later allowed to expire in the continuing budget resolution."
