H.R. 220: To authorize the expansion of an existing hydroelectric project, and for other purposes.

Jun 27, 2017 at 4:30 p.m. ET. On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass, as Amended in the House.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 220 (115th) in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 220, as amended, allows for the expansion of the existing Terror Lake hydroelectric project located on Kodiak Island within the Kodiak Island National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska, to meet the growing needs of its 13,800 residents and the U.S. Coast Guard facility on the island. Without this expansion, the community would need to import diesel fuel and run generators at great cost and environmental harm. The project may use up to 20 acres of federal land within the Refuge to divert via an underground tunnel a small portion of waters from the adjacent Upper Hidden Basin into Terror Lake to increase hydropower project capacity. This project would be subject to the Federal Power Act, including mandatory environmental conditions, but not require the Secretary of the Interior to further authorize it under the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act.
