Speaker Pelosi, Don't Force Progressives to Vote Against the Budget Bill
Pipeline Permits Hurt Our Communities

About This Petition

Members of the House are urging Democratic Party leadership to not attach a bill fast-tracking pipeline permits to must-pass legislation to fund the federal government past the end of next month.

The pipeline-permitting bill was promised to Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) by Sen. Maj. Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in return for Manchin supporting the Inflation Reduction Act. But progressives and environmental justice advocates have warned that the bill will make it easier for fossil fuel companies to overcome community opposition to potentially dangerous projects.

Despite progressive opposition, some House Democrats might feel compelled to support the Manchin bill if Pelosi and Hoyer tie it to a resolution to keep the government funded past Sept. 30. Progressive members have signed a letter asking House Democrats to oppose such a move which gives progressives a shot at killing it.

But if Speaker Pelosi moves forward with the pipeline permits included, she will be forcing progressives to vote "NO" on the bill overall.

Let's make our voices heard and tell Speaker Pelosi: don't force progressives to vote against the Budget Bill.
