123 CONG.REC. H4110
May 5, 1977
May 5, 1977
Mr. RONCALIO. Mr. Speaker, during debate on the Baucus amendment to H.R. 2 on April 29, certain of my remarks as they appear in the center column of the CONGRESSIONAL RECORD on page H3811 are unclear and should be corrected.
I ask unanimous consent that the permanent RECORD read as follows:
The 9th, 10th and 11th paragraphs of the middle column, page H3811 should read:
The third category are those mines with neither production nor permits granted prior to January 4, 1977, some with proposed mining in alluvial valley floors. Among Wyoming proposed mines in that category there are:
"Whitney Benefits" (Peter Kiewit); East Gillette (Kerr-McGee) .02 square miles; Rochelle (Peabody Coal) .08 square miles; Peabody Coal; Coal Creek (ARCO) .19 square miles; Buckskin (Shell Oil); Consol. Coal (Mobil Oil).
None of these had received a mining permit from the State of Wyoming prior to January 4, 1977, although each of the companies had made considerable investment and some have similar mines within the same or neighboring counties in Wyoming under similar conditions.
The seventh paragraph, right column, page H3811, should read:
And similarly then, as to the Belle Fourche mine of the Sun Oil Co., with 6.42 square miles and 13 square miles in the alluvial valley, and which is now under operation and with the Carter Oil Co., Caballo, where only 2.8 percent of the mine is in the alluvial valley and a State permit has been granted, the gentleman's amendment would have no application?
