2018 Scorecard Vote
Representative Andy Biggs (R-AZ) offered an amendment to H.R. 6147, the Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2019, which would undermine the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), America’s premier conservation program. This amendment would divert LWCF funding to the national parks maintenance backlog, and thus manufactures a false choice between addressing LWCF and addressing parks maintenance, even though the two can work together to benefit our public lands. On July 18, the House rejected the Biggs amendment by a vote of 172-237 (House roll call vote 341). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
