ENVI Committee Rejects Nature Restoration Law
The European Parliament’s Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI) Committee voted on June 27 to reject the proposed EU Nature Restoration Law as amended. The final vote was 44 in favor, 44 against and 0 abstentions, failing to achieve a majority in favor.
The Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety will present a proposal to the plenary to reject the European Commission’s proposal. The European Parliament must then take a position on the Nature Restoration Law , probably at the July plenary session in Strasbourg. What this means in practice is that MEPs, particularly the European People’s Party faction, are increasingly turning their backs on the European Green Deal and will avoid taking the side of reform for the planet in the election campaign.
