2019 Scorecard Vote
Representative Joe Neguse (D-CO) sponsored H.R. 823, the Colorado Outdoor Recreation and Economy Act (CORE Act), which would establish new wilderness, conservation, and recreation sites in Colorado for future generations to enjoy. This bill would protect 400,000 acres of public land in the state by withdrawing 200,000 acres from future oil and gas development and establishing new wilderness and conservation areas with diverse opportunities for the recreation economy. This vote is a 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. The Senate took no action on this legislation.
