Conservation Report Card

The Conservation Report Card measures the commitment of U.S. Senators and Representatives to wildlife and habitat conservation during each Congressional session. It reviews both House and Senate votes on key conservation issues, providing a clear assessment of how well members of Congress are doing to protect wildlife and wild lands for future generations.

The Report Card is an important resource constituents can use to examine their elected representatives' efforts to conserve our nation's natural heritage for our children and grandchildren.

NOTE: Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund considers the scores of legislators who missed more than 25% of report card votes to be incomplete. However, due to technical reasons, in the online version of our Report Card below, all members are given scores.

To check your elected officials' voting record, please enter your ZIP Code (either 5 digits or the entire 9 digit ZIP+4 code if you know it. If you live in a split district, you might have to enter your full address):

02/06/2014
The House passed a package of harmful public lands bills that would overturn endangered species protections at Cape Hatteras National Seashore, stop or delay reviews of grazing activities that could harm imperiled sage-grouse, and waive all environmental law for post-fire logging potentially harmful to wildlife habitat in the Stanislaus National Forest. (February 6, 2014, Roll Call No. 54)
Oppose
Passed
02/05/2014
The House passed a bill that that would override Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections in the California Bay-Delta, shut down the San Joaquin River Restoration Program, preempt state water law, and undermine other environmental safeguards in the Bay-Delta. (February 5, 2014, Roll Call No. 50).
Oppose
Passed

The House rejected an amendment that would have removed harmful provisions in the underlying bill eliminating environmental reviews for all types of uses on national wildlife refuges. (February 5, 2014, Roll Call No. 38)
Support
Failed
11/20/2013
The House passed a bill to prioritize oil and gas development over the other multiple uses on public lands and to give the State of Alaska the leverage to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling. (November, 20, 2013, Roll Call No. 600)
Oppose
Passed
10/23/2013
The House rejected an amendment that would have delayed implementation of provisions in a Water Resources Development Act bill intended to weaken environmental review. The amendment addressed the misnomer that environmental review is delaying the completion of large-scale water projects, such as dams and port dredging, by profiling the true cause of delay, the lack of funding to support the huge number and scale of authorized infrastructure projects. (October 23, 2013, Roll Call 556)
Support
Failed
09/20/2013
The House passed a bill that would dramatically increase logging and undermine bedrock environmental laws to the detriment of wildlife, drinking water and community access. The legislation includes trust proposals on O&C lands in Oregon and elsewhere that would upend decades of science-based forest management and planning and would further harm endangered species. (September 20, 2013, Roll Call No. 483)
Oppose
Passed
06/28/2013
The House passed a bill that would give the oil industry access to thousands of miles of coastline currently off limits to drilling. The bill would also undermine bedrock environmental law, create incentives to coastal states for supporting damaging oil drilling and stifle the public's ability to hold the industry accountable. (June 28, 2013, Roll Call No. 304)
Oppose
Passed
06/28/2013
The House rejected an amendment that would have protected ecologically important Bristol Bay in Alaska from oil and gas drilling and eliminated revenue-sharing provisions in the underlying bill that provide incentives for coastal states to support oil drilling despite risks to their coastlines. (June 29, 2013, Roll Call No. 299)
Support
Failed
06/20/2013

Oppose
Failed
06/19/2013
The House voted down an amendment that would have encouraged farmers and ranchers to enroll their most environmentally sensitive lands in a federal conservation program. (June 19, 2013, Roll Call No. 259)
Support
