1977 Voto de la Tarjeta de Evaluaciones

Strip Mining II
Senado Votación Nominal 151
Tema: Energía Sucia

(S. 7). The vote is on the Johnston amendment to permit states to retain exclusive jurisdiction over strip mining regulations, if the Secretary of Interior determined that the state's environmental standards were at least as strict as the federal standards. Environmentalists saw this amendment as a way for the states to avoid federal oversight. Past history suggests that once states were granted exclusive jurisdiction, they might be very lax in enforcing their own regulations. Strip mine enforcement in most states has been very weak. Environmentalists opposed this amendment and supported the attempt in S. 7 as written to establish uniform strip mine reclamation standards nationwide. The Administration also opposed the amendment. Rejected 39-51; May 19, 1977. No is the correct vote.
