House Action Can Protect Grand Canyon from Mining
"Thanks to bold and needed action today by the House Natural Resources Committee, we hope that America's most treasured icon, Grand Canyon National Park, will not be harmed by mining. We now look to the Administration to honor this emergency resolution, and seek the support of Congress to pass pending legislation that would permanently protect the Grand Canyon for our children and grandchildren."
