2022 Recent Vote
Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) sponsored H.R. 2773, the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act of 2021, to combat our nation’s biodiversity crisis by providing the most significant investment in the conservation and restoration of wildlife and plant species in a generation. In the United States today, many wildlife species are declining with one third of species already imperiled or vulnerable and an increasing number at risk of becoming endangered. This bill would provide over $1 billion dollars annually in transformative funding for collaborative programs to recover these species and support diverse wildlife populations. Critically, this legislation would also be the first and only federal conservation program that guarantees sustained funding to Tribal Nations for fish and wildlife preservation. On June 14, the House approved H.R. 2773 by a vote of 231-190 (House roll call vote 267). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
