Rep. Raul Grijalva (AZ) has introduced the Grand Canyon Watersheds Protection Act of 2011 (H.R. 855). The bill would make more than 1 million acres of federally-owned land unavailable for disposal, mining, and mineral and geothermal leasing. Existing rights on these lands would continue until they are relinquished or otherwise acquired by the federal government.
Rep. Dave Camp (MI) introduced the Stop Asian Carp Act (H.R. 892). The bill would direct the Corp of Engineers to study the feasibility of separating the Great Lakes basin from the Mississippi River basin. A similar bill has been introduced in the Senate (S. 471).
