1971 Scorecard Vote

Dickey-Lincoln Dam
House Roll Call Vote 146
Issues: Water, Lands/Forests, Wildlife

Public Works and AEC Appropriations bill (HR 10090). The vote is on Rep. Clark's amendment to delete $100,000 for restudy of the Dickey-Lincoln Dam. The proposed dam would impound the free-flowing upper St. John River, and flood enormous portions of the Great Maine Woods wilderness. Leading state and national conservation groups opposed the project, which was supported by proponents of public electric power. Both issues influenced the vote. The Army Corps of Engineers asked for the money in their budget request, but the White House took no position on the Clark amendment. (Adopted 199-181. July 29, 1971. "Yes" is the correct vote.)
