House Roll Call No. 809
112nd Congress, 1st Session

Passed: 235-186 (see complete tally)

Representative Paul Gosar (R-AZ) introduced H.R. 1904, the deceptively titled Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act, which would transfer lands within the Tonto National Forest to a mining corporation in exchange for the government receiving lower-quality private lands owned by the corporation.  The legislation would allow the land exchange to occur without proper environmental review for the large-scale mining operations planned for the area, which is considered a sacred site by Native American tribes and is renowned for its natural beauty.  On October 26, the House adopted H.R. 1904 by a vote of 235-186 (House roll call vote 809).  NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.  The Senate has taken no action on this legislation.
