1993 Voto de la Tarjeta de Evaluaciones
The uncertain future of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge on the Alaskan coast, with its herd of 180,000 caribou (see Senate cosponsorship No. 15), led Rep. Richard Lehman (D-CA) to introduce H.R. 39 to designate the Arctic coastal plain as wilderness. Originally championed by retired Interior Committee Chair Morris Udall (D-AZ), the bill has been named the Morris K. Udall Wilderness Act of 1993 in his honor.
The League of Conservation Voters considers cosponsorship of H.R. 39 to be an important pro-environmental position. The bill has 119 cosponsors.
