2015 Scorecard Vote
House Natural Resource Committee Ranking Member Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ) offered an amendment to H.R. 2822, the Department of the Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016, which would remove a damaging policy rider in the bill mandating that Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service lands damaged by drought and wildfire be made available for grazing. The Grijalva amendment would have ensured that any new grazing permits sought on these damaged lands be reviewed under the National Environmental Policy Act thereby ensuring public input and accountability. On July 8, the House rejected the Grijalva amendment by a vote of 178-251 (House roll call vote 399). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
