Bill re-filed to halt uranium exploration in N. Arizona

News reports say Rep. Raul Grijalva and Ed Pastor have introduced legislation to limit uranium exploration on about 1 million acres north and south of the Grand Canyon, including in the Kaibab National Forest.

There are no announcements on either rep's web pages, nor any record of the bill at (which has become my favorite site to track Congressional actions).

So, until the bill is available, I will assume that the "Grand Canyon Watersheds Protection Act of 2009" is re-introduction of the bill of the same name from last year. [right, areas that would be closed to mineral entry under the 2008 legislation]
