Representative Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) offered this amendment to H.R. 1, the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act of 2011, to cut by 90% the bill’s already minimal allocation for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), which is funded by oil royalties and helps expand protected lands and fund local projects such as city parks. The LWCF has provided critical funding for some of the most cherished places in our nation, from the Grand Canyon to Gettysburg National Military Park to Mount Rainier National Park. On February 16, the House rejected the Lummis amendment by a vote of 213-216 (House roll call vote 61). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
