1993 Scorecard Vote

Desert Protection
Issues: Wildlife, Lands/Forests

H.R. 518 corresponds to the California Desert Protection Act in the Senate (see Senate cosponsorship No. 16 for a full description). It was introduced by Rep. Richard Lehman (D-CA) and Natural Resources Chair George Miller (D-CA) to protect California's shrinking and threatened desert ecosystems. It would enlarge both Death Valley National Monument and Joshua Tree National Monument, designate them both as national parks, create a 1.5-million acre Mojave National Park, and establish four million acres of wilderness under the Bureau of Land Management.

The League of Conservation Voters includes cosponsorship of H.R. 518 as an important pro-environmental action. Currently, 95 representatives have cosponsored.
