1971 Scorecard Vote

Nuclear Testing
House Roll Call Vote 145
Issues: Dirty Energy, Oceans, Wildlife

Public Works and AEC Appropriations bill (HR 10090). The vote is on Rep. Mink's amendment to prohibit funds for the Project Cannikan nuclear blast at Amchitka Island, Alaska. Conservationists opposed the blast because of the risks of earthquakes, radioactive leakage into the ocean, and danger to sea-otters and other wildlife. (Amchitka is supposedly a national wildlife refuge.) The Nixon Administration opposed the Mink amendment. (Rejected 108-275. July 29, 1971. "Yes" is the correct vote.)
