Vito Fossella's recent legislative votes

National Landscape Conservation System Act, H.R. 2016
Vote Passed (278-140, 12 Not Voting)

The House voted to give permanent statutory protection to the Department of Interior’s National Landscape Conservation System, a 26 million-acre network of monuments, scenic trails, and conservation and wildlife areas.

The National Landscape Conservation System is a 26 million acre collection of national monuments, wilderness areas, scenic rivers, trails, and historic sites. These crown jewels are the last places to experience the history and wild beauty of the American West, with hunting, fishing, access to the rugged outdoors, and opportunities to create your own adventure.

The Bureau of Land Management's Conservation System was designated seven years ago, but without further support there is no guarantee that the System will be around in another seven years. Only Congress can permanently establish the Conservation System as the last great network of American protected lands. [via ConservationSystem.org]
