Scored vote

Scorecard: Club For Growth 2007 Senate Scorecard

Org. position: {{{Vote position 1}}}


"Vote on the proposal that would increase and expand Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards and require 36 billion gallons of biofuels to be produced and used domestically by 2022. The pro-growth vote was "nay" because the CAFÉ standards and the biofuel regulations increase costs and distort the market for cars and fuel. This bill also contains a tax increase. Passed 65-27: R 20-23; D 43-4 (ND 39-3, SD 4-1); I 2-0."

Scored vote

Scorecard: American Conservative Union 2007 Senate Scorecard

Org. position: Nay


"The Senate passed legislation imposing massive new regulation on the energy industry, including a rise in automobile mileage to 35 miles per gallon by 2020, a ban on the incandescent light bulb, new energy efficiency mandates for appliances, the use of 15 billion gallons of biofuels by 2015, and the taxpayer subsidy of new energy technologies. ACU opposes this kind of direct government interference in the economy."
