TO MODIFY THE UDALL AMENDMENT OFFERED IN THE NATURE OF A SUBSTITUTE FOR THE MEEDS SUBSTITUTE AMENDMENT FOR H.R. 39. THE YOUNG MODIFYING AMENDMENTS WOULD REDUCE THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF LAND DESIGNATED TO BECOME NATIONAL PARKS AND WILDLIFE REFUGES BY APPROXIMATELY FIVE MILLION ACRES. THE UDALL SUBSTITUTE BILL EMBODIES THE LANGUAGE OF THE ORIGINAL COMMITTEE BILL AND FURTHER PROVIDES THAT MINING MAY OCCUR IN CERTAIN NON-WILDERNESS AREAS WITH THE CONSENT OF CONGRESS AND OF THE SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR. THE MEEDS SUBSTITUTE BILL REDUCES THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF LANDS DESIGNATED AS WILDERNESS TO 33 MILLION ACRES AND PERMITS MINERAL ASSESSMENT, EXPLORATION, DEVELOPMENT AND EXTRACTION IN NATIONAL PRESERVES, WILDLIFE RANGES AND WILDLIFE REFUGES.

This vote was related to a bill introduced by Rep. Morris Udall [D-AZ2, 1961-1991] on January 4, 1977, H.R. 39 (95th): Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act.

From October 2014 through July 2015, we displayed incorrect vote totals for some historical votes. Although the total correctly reflected the announced positions of Members of Congress, the totals incorrectly included “paired” votes, which is when two Members of Congress, one planning to vote in favor and the other against, plan ahead of time to both abstain. The totals now omit paired votes and now more closely reflect the official totals.
