2022 Scorecard Vote
Representative Joe Neguse (D-CO) sponsored an amendment to H.R. 7900, the 2023 National Defense Authorization Act, to add the text of the Colorado Outdoor Recreation and Economy (CORE) Act and the Grand Canyon Protection Act. The CORE Act protects 400,000 acres of public lands in Colorado including 73,000 acres of new wilderness and roughly 80,000 acres of recreation and conservation management areas. The Grand Canyon Protection Act protects almost one million acres of federal lands around Grand Canyon National Park from dangerous uranium mining that threatens this iconic landscape as well as the health and welfare of tribal communities in the region. On July 14, the House approved the Neguse amendment by a vote of 214-201 (House roll call vote 345). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
