House vote on land exchange bumped again

Posted: Tuesday, Oct 1st, 2013

The legislation needed to pave the way for the Resolution Copper mine in Superior is still stuck in gridlock in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Washington, D.C. HR 687, the Resolution Copper mine land swap bill, was once again pushed aside from having a full vote of the U.S. House of Representatives. The legislation to pave the way for a new $6 billion dollar copper mine east of Superior, Ariz. was on the calendar Thursday morning for the entire house vote. Although more than an hour late, the proceedings did start with heated debates on an amendment to the land swap requested by Democratic Congresswoman Grace Napolitano of California and another amendment to the measure sought by Arizona Democratic Congressman Raul Grijalva. Both of these members of Congress are opponents to the new 7,000 foot underground mine, and both of their proposed changes to HR 687 were defeated by votes of the House, 217 to 191 and 227 to 180.
