1978 Scorecard Vote

Redwood Park Expansion I
Senate Roll Call Vote 659
Issue: Lands/Forests

(S 1976). The vote is on the Havakawa amendment to delete from the bill provisions entitling the Secretary of Interior to take over some or all of a 30,000 acre designated zone bordering Redwood National Park, if that becomes necessary to protect the park. The original Redwood Park had been threatened by logging operations outside the park that caused soil erosion and flooding downstream within the park. The Committee bill provided this park protection zone to guard against such problems in the future. Environmentalists supported the Committee bill and opposed the amendment. So did the President. Rejected 28-65; January 31, 1978. No is the correct vote.
