1972 Scorecard Vote

Land Use III
Senate Roll Call Vote 848
Issue: Lands/Forests

Land Use Planning and Local Assistance Act (S 632). The vote is on the Jordan amendment to slash funding for the bill from $100 million annually for eight years to $40 million annually for the first two years and $30 million annually for the next five years. Most of the money in the bill would be given to the states; however, the bill lacked federal guidelines or sanctions strong enough to ensure good state programs. The Nixon Administration supported the amendment. (Adopted 44-35. September 19, 1972. "No" is the correct vote.)
