1973 Scorecard Vote

Alaskan Pipeline Right of Way II
Senate Roll Call Vote 286
Issue: Dirty Energy
Federal Lands Right of Way Act of 1973 (S. 1081). The vote is on the Gravel amendment to prevent judicial review of the pipeline or related permits issued by the Secretary of Interior. Environmentalists opposed the amendment because in the words of Senator Jackson, "it exempted the pipeline from contracts law, securities, and many other laws, and would set a dangerous precedent to exempt a project, which all parties admit represents a potential threat to the environment, from the requirements of environmental law." The President did not take a position on the amendment, but did oppose a similar provision in the House. July 17, 1973. Adopted 49-48. No is the correct vote.
