2019 Scorecard Vote
Representative Joe Neguse (D-CO) sponsored H.R. 823, the Colorado Outdoor Recreation and Economy Act (CORE Act), which establishes new wilderness, conservation, and recreation sites in the state of Colorado for future generations to enjoy. This bill would protect 400,000 acres of public land in Colorado by withdrawing 200,000 acres from future oil and gas development and establishing new wilderness and conservation areas ripe with diverse opportunities for the recreation economy. It would also designate Camp Hale as the first-ever National Historical Landscape to preserve, promote, and honor the legacy of the 10th Mountain Division of the Army. This vote is a great victory for our country’s natural and cultural heritage, our public lands and waters, and the outdoor recreation economy. On October 31, the House approved H.R. 823 by a vote of 227–182 (House roll call vote 609). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
