2013 Scorecard Vote
Representative Doug Lamborn (R-CO) sponsored H.R. 1965, the Federal Lands Jobs and Energy Security Act, which would direct federal land managers to prioritize drilling on our public lands over other activities such as hunting, fishing, and hiking. Such a mandate subverts the multiple uses these lands have historically been managed for, and it would harm businesses that comprise our nation’s $646 billion outdoor recreation economy. On November 20, the House approved H.R. 1965 by a vote of 228-192 (House roll call vote 600). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE. The Senate took no action on this legislation.
