HR 5093. Interior Appropriations for 2003/Vote to Protect Wildlife Refuges in Washington and Oregon.
house Roll Call 316     Jul 17, 2002
Progressive Position:
Yea
Progressive Result:
Loss

One of the many responsibilities of the Department of the Interior is the management of public lands. As a result, a number of amendments relating to land management were proposed during the debate on the bill to fund the Interior Department for 2003. Blumenauer (D-OR) proposed one such amendment: a ban on new leases for agricultural development on the Lower Klamath and Tule Lake National Wildlife refuges in Oregon and Washington. Progressives favored the ban, which was meant to stop overuse of the water in the area so that fish and wildlife there would be protected. They were joined by most other Democrats and even 23 Republicans, but the amendment was still rejected 201-223.
