ROLL CALL

June 03, 1990

THE HOUSE

Clean Air Act

By a vote of 401 to 21, the House sent to conference with the Senate a bill (HR 3030) giving the Clean Air Act its first upgrade since 1977. In part, the measure drastically cuts emissions from Midwest and Appalachian power plants that cause acid rain, imposes tailpipe controls on motor vehicles and introduces cleaner gasoline to cities with the dirtiest air.

It curbs the discharge of a wide range of toxic chemicals from factories such as petrochemical plants and harmful emissions from small businesses such as dry cleaners. Estimates are that the bill will cost the private sector up to $20 billion over the next several years.

A yes vote supported the bill.

New Relief Program

By a vote of 274 to 146, the House adopted an amendment establishing special relief for workers who lose their jobs or have their hours reduced by at least 20% as a result of the new clean air legislation (above). The maximum benefit would be an additional six months of unemployment payments and two years of retraining assistance, at a cost to the Treasury of up to $250 million over five years.

A yes vote supported special aid to workers hurt by new clean air legislation.

Longer Warranties

The House adopted, 239 to 180, an amendment toughening warranties on the catalytic converters and electronic control units needed to meet tailpipe emission standards set by the new clean air legislation (above). Auto makers would have to provide eight-year, 80,000-mile protection on the equipment, compared to the five years and 50,000 miles required by current law.

A yes vote was to require longer warranties on devices to curb auto pollution.
