2017 Scorecard Vote
Representative Jared Polis (D-CO) offered an amendment to H.R. 3354, the Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2018, which would prevent federal public lands from being transferred to private owners in violation of existing laws. The amendment comes at a time when extremists in Congress and in numerous state legislatures are pushing for the sale or transfer of America’s majestic public lands to states and other entities, where they could be leased or sold off for harmful development. On September 13, the House rejected the Polis amendment by a vote of 198-212 (House roll call vote 491). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
