Off-Road Vehicles in National Forests

House Roll Call No. 113
112nd Congress, 1st Session

Agreed to: 227-197 (see complete tally)

Representative Wally Herger (R-CA) offered this amendment to H.R. 1, the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act of 2011, to halt implementation of off-road vehicle management plans in our national forests.  During the George W. Bush administration, the Forest Service named unmanaged off-road vehicle use as one of the four greatest threats to our forests and grasslands.  On February 18, the House adopted the Herger amendment by a vote of 227-197 (House roll call vote 113).  NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.  Fortunately, the language in this amendment was not included in the compromise appropriations bill that funded the government through the end of FY11, H.R. 1473, which the president signed into law on April 15.
