H.5045 Net Metering Cap Increase (Motion to Continue)
Rep. James Smith made a motion to recommit the bill to committee which would have killed it. Rep. Forrester, a supporter of the bill, made a motion to “table” the motion to recommit. The House voted 51-50 on April 5, 2018 to table the motion to recommit, letting debate on the bill continue.
While this vote was a loss, the early vote picture allowed our clean-energy champions to work to flip votes on the floor, ultimately allowing a bipartisan coalition of clean energy champions to kill H.5045 on a continuance vote of 61-39. This continuance vote is the focus of this scored vote.
Killing this bill allowed the House to proceed to debate and discussion on H.4421, the solar jobs bill.
- This is a procedural vote on an Anti-Conservation Bill.
- The Pro-Conservation Vote was YES for continuing the bill
- The bill died in the House.
