Doug-Collins_2

Rep. Doug Collins (R) currently represents residents of Georgia’s 9th Congressional district (GA09) in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Collins is running against challenger Josh McCall (D) in the November 6, 2018 midterm election.

 


No position statement on climate change

Collins does not have a position statement on climate change.

When asked if human activity is contributing to climate change, he responded, “No.”

Collins signed the No Climate Tax Pledge.

 


Supports exiting the Paris Agreement

Collins supports the White House’s decision to exit the Paris Agreement:

It’s time we stand up for our own interests…

 


Supports domestic on- and offshore drilling and the Keystone XL pipeline

In his 2012 campaign website, Collins stated:

America needs an all-encompassing energy policy that will enable us to no longer depend on our enemies for energy sources foreign dictators for our energy resources. Because of this, I strongly support domestic on- and offshore drilling. If elected, I will put my full backing behind projects like the Keystone XL Pipeline, which would increase our domestic production and help decrease out of control gas prices.

 


Strong supporter of regulatory reform

Collins has introduced legislation to limit the federal government’s ability to approve new federal rules and regulations and has worked on legislation to limit the reach of the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

When the current administration announced in 2017 that it would repeal the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, Collins supported its repeal:

The illogical and overreaching Waters of the United States rule would increase the regulatory burden on northeast Georgia farmers, ranchers, and small businesses.

It’s a prime example of bureaucracy run amok, and I applaud President Trump and the EPA for moving to rescind the WOTUS regulation and investing in policies that actually serve our communities and steward their natural resources.

 


Anti-environmental voting record

Collin’s voting record shows a history of casting anti-environmental votes.
