Update on Resolution Copper land exchange legislation

An email update from Resolution Copper reports that "On March 18, 2010, Congresswomen Ann Kirkpatrick introduced complementary legislation into the House of Representatives. The rewritten legislation reflects changes agreed to by bipartisan members of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources in December 2009."     S-409 would exchange 5,500 acres of prime conservation lands for US Forest Service and other lands needed to develop the underground copper mine.
