1. In 2003, Jim Marshall voted for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House. (House Roll Call Vote #2, 01/07/2003)

2. In 2005, Jim Marshall voted for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House. (House Roll Call Vote #2, 01/04/2005)

3. Rep. Marshall opposed the Energy Policy Act of 2005 that focuses on reducing demand for foreign fuel supplies and lowering gas prices through conservation, increased domestic production and processing, and new research into various alternative fuels, like clean coal technology, that are both good for the environment and readily available. (House Roll Call Vote 132, 4/21/05)

4. Oil reserves in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) are estimated to be about 10 billion barrels and access to that oil would boost domestic production by almost 20 percent. Drilling in ANWR would provide 1 million barrels of oil a day for the next 30 years and would create more than 1 million jobs across the nation. (House Resources Committee) Even though the proposal to drill for oil in the ANWR would limit oil facilities to just 2,000 of the ANWR’s 19 million acres (0.01 percent), Rep. Marshall still sided with the environmental extremists and voted to prohibit oil and gas exploration in ANWR. (House Roll Call Vote 122, 4/20/05)

5. Looking to thwart American energy independence, Rep. Marshall voted against a bill aimed at expanding domestic oil capacity – it eased the building and expansion of refineries. (House Roll Call Vote 246, 6/16/04)
