H.R. 2691. Fiscal 2004 Interior Appropriations/Vote to Increase the Accessibility of Federal Lands and Recreational Areas to the Public.
house Roll Call 377     Jul 17, 2003
Progressive Position:
Yea
Progressive Result:
Loss

During debate on the 2004 Interior appropriations bill, Representative DeFazio (D-OR) introduced an amendment which, he argued, would have increased individuals' accessibility to federal forestland and other recreational areas. Had DeFazio's amendment passed, the total acreage of federal lands subject to recreational fees-payments by visitors who enter certain lands which are managed by the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management-would have been reduced. Progressives voted in favor of DeFazio's amendment because, in their view, individuals should be encouraged, and not charged, to visit public lands and recreational areas. Forty-seven Democrats voted against DeFazio's amendment and the measure was defeated 184-241.
