Conservation Report Card Vote List

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.
