Arizona Dem unveils bill to permanently ban uranium mining on 1M acres of land near Grand Canyon NP

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK — An Arizona lawmaker is renewing his push to halt uranium mining near the Grand Canyon, outlining a proposal Saturday that would make permanent a moratorium on new claims across 1 million acres of public lands.


Rep. Raúl Grijalva has introduced other versions of what he's calling the “Grand Canyon Centennial Protection Act” several times in recent years, but he's likely to find stronger support this time in the Democratic-controlled House, where he is chairman of the Natural Resources Committee.
