CUSP 108th-1st Session
Congressional Environmental Scorecard
All scored 0 — 100
Awareness Test (NPAT)
NPAT multiple choice questionnaire responses are on the Web at: vote-smart.org or by calling 1-888/VOTE SMART. Questions vary from year to year. CUSP credits a Member for best environmental answers or comments.
* = Member marked best NPAT answer in most recent reply.The Member’s other answers are ignored. Note that in some cases the Member’s vote score belies his/her good public statement made when running for election!
Best NPAT answers are:
In C/C/P column (NPAT "Environment"): "strengthen the regulations and enforcement of the Clean Water Act & Clean Air Act" (or one of these in years when only one is listed) and/or "revise the 1872 mining law."
In Immigration column (NPAT "Immigration") "decrease the number of immigrants allowed into the country." [Polls show that a large majority of Americans favor this, yet only Senators Durbin (D-IL) in 1998 and Reid (D-NV) in 2002, and fifteen House members ever gave this best NPAT answer. This is a prime example of corruption of democratic government at the highest level.] (Note: No immigration category was listed in the 1992 and 1994 NPAT.)
In Natural Increase column (NPAT "Abortion"):
[MFS note: also see Minnesota delegation immigration voting records here.]
