2018 Scorecard Vote
Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI) sponsored H.R. 6784, the Manage Our Wolves Act, which would undermine both the scientific and legal framework of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) by legislatively removing ESA protections for nearly all gray wolves across the continental United States and preventing judicial review of these delisting actions. Additionally, H.R. 6784 would codify a 2017 D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals decision to delist gray wolves in Wyoming, while at the same time overturning a unanimous decision by the same court, which upheld protections for gray wolves in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. On November 16, the House approved H.R. 6784 by a vote of 196-180 (House roll call vote 420). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE. The Senate took no action on this legislation.
