               PRIVATE PROPERTY CONGRESSIONAL VOTE INDEX

                                 ______
                                 

                               speech of

                            HON. WES COOLEY

                               of oregon

                    in the house of representatives

                        Friday, October 4, 1996

  Mr. COOLEY. Mr. Speaker, today I bring to my colleague's attention 
the 1995-96 Private Property Rights Congressional Vote Index created 
and published by the League of Private Property Voters in Battle 
Ground, WA.
  This index, first published in 1990, was developed in response to 
actions of Federal agencies that result in the taking of private 
property without just compensation. The current index is sponsored by 
several hundred grassroots-wise use and private property rights groups. 
Among the Oregon cosponsors are Oregon Cattlemens Association, Oregon 
Farm Bureau, Oregon Lands Coalition, Oregonians for Food and Shelter, 
and Oregonians in Action.
  I urge my colleagues to read and study this index to learn more about 
the concerns of private property rights advocates.

                 United States House of Representatives

       The votes listed below show how the House supported (S) or 
     opposed (O) the League of Private Property Voters position. A 
     description of each vote is listed below along with the 
     scorecard.
       You will gain the greatest benefit by first looking up your 
     Representative to see what his private property score was on 
     the right side of the scorecard. Then read each vote 
     description. The league private property position listed near 
     the top of the scorecard shows how we believe your 
     Representative should have voted on each issue. Check to see 
     whether you Representative supported (S) or opposed (O) the 
     League private property position.

                            U.S. House Votes


           house vote #1: Weakening unfunded mandate reforms

       H.R. 5 requires a Congressional Budget Office cost analysis 
     and specifics on how a bill or regulation would be financed 
     on any measure imposing costs of more than $50 million on 
     state and local governments. Representative James Moran (D-
     VA) offered a substitute amendment to severely weaken H.R. 5 
     by removing a provision in the bill blocking the 
     consideration of legislation that does not provide money for 
     meeting a federal mandate. The Moran substitute was rejected 
     February 1, 1995 on a 152-278 vote. Private property rights 
     supporters voted NO.


                  house vote #2: regulatory moratorium

       H.R. 450 would temporarily prohibit federal agencies from 
     implementing new federal regulations. The freeze would be in 
     effect until December 31, 1995, or when the regulatory 
     revisions in the ``Contract With America'' were enacted, 
     whichever is sooner, and would retroactively cover 
     regulations proposed or put into effect since November 20, 
     1994. The bill would exempt routine regulations and those 
     that address an ``imminent threat to health or safety.'' H.R. 
     450 passed 276-146 on February 24, 1995. The President's 
     position was a no vote. Private property advocates voted YES.


house vote #3: strengthening risk assessment and cost/benefit analysis 
                         for new regulation act

       H.R. 1022 requires that any new regulations affecting the 
     environment, health and safety that would likely cost the 
     economy more than $25 million annually must first undergo an 
     assessment of risk and the relative costs and benefits. 
     Representatives Joe Barton (R-TX), Mike Crapo (R-ID) and 
     Billy Tauzin (D-LA) offered an amendment to strengthen H.R. 
     1022 by establishing a process whereby citizens could 
     petition federal agencies to review EXISTING regulations. The 
     Barton-Crapo-Tauzin Amendment was rejected on a 206-220 vote 
     on February 28, 1995. Private property rights advocates voted 
     YES.


      house vote #4: private property rights--30 percent threshold

       H.R. 925 was a private property rights bill that would 
     provide for landowners to be compensated for the loss of the 
     use of their land caused by federal regulations. The Goss 
     Amendment (Porter Goss (R-FL)) would have weakened H.R. 925 
     in two ways. First it would have raised the threshold to 30% 
     from 10% before the bill would kick in and require 
     compensation to the landowner. Second, the Goss Amendment 
     would have required that the 30% apply to all the landowners 
     property, not just the portion affected by the regulation as 
     stated in H.R. 925. The Goss Amendment was defeated 210-211 
     on March 2, 1995 (the House eventually settled on a 20% 
     threshold). The property rights position was a NO.


                 house vote #5: private property rights

       H.R. 925 would require federal agencies to compensate 
     private property owners for federal actions taken under the 
     Endangered Species Act, the Wetlands provisions of the Clean 
     Water Law and the 1985 Farm Bill, and certain laws affecting 
     Western water rights that reduce the value of any section of 
     their properties by 20 percent or more. If a regulation took 
     50% or more of the property value, the landowner would be 
     able to force the government to buy out his property. H.R. 
     925 passed 277-148 on March 3, 1995. The President's position 
     was a no vote. Private property advocates voted YES.


  house vote #6: emergency harvest of dead and dying trees on federal 
                                 lands

       During the last five years a net of 21 billion board feet 
     of dead and dying timber has accumulated on Forest Service 
     lands nationwide. Unfortunately, existing federal barriers 
     have prevented these trees from being harvested before they 
     deteriorate and lose commercial value. They merely rot and 
     provide no employment for rural timber economies and increase 
     the cost of forest products used to build houses. H.R. 1158, 
     the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations and Rescissions 
     bill, contained a common sense provision by Representatives 
     Charles Taylor (R-NC) and Don Young (R-AK) which established 
     expedited procedures for removing these dead and dying trees 
     while still retaining important environmental safeguards. An 
     amendment by Rep. Sidney Yates (D-IL) to strike the Taylor-
     Young provisions and thus retain existing barriers to 
     harvesting these trees was defeated on March 15, 1995 by a 
     150-275 vote. Private property rights supporters voted NO.


          house vote #7: wetlands definition and compensation

       H.R. 961 is a bill to revise the Clean Water Act and 
     regulation of wetlands. The Boehlert Amendment (Sherwood 
     Boehlert (R-NY)) would have gutted H.R. 961. It would have 
     broadened the definition of wetlands to cover more land and 
     eliminated the provisions of the bill that would require 
     federal compensation for private landowners affected by 
     wetlands regulation. This amendment was supported by 39 
     moderate Republicans and opposed by 51 conservative 
     Democrats. The Boehlert Amendment was defeated 185-242 on May 
     16, 1995. The private property vote was a NO.


   house vote #8: more funding for converting private property into 
                            federal property

       H.R. 1977, the FY 1996 Interior Appropriations bill, 
     contained $51 million for federal agencies to acquire only 
     the highest priority lands for national parks, national 
     forests and wildlife refuges. Representative George Miller 
     (D-CA) offered an amendment to increase this amount by $183 
     million which is offset by a corresponding cut in fossil fuel 
     research and development funding. The Miller Amendment was 
     defeated 170-253 on July 13, 1995. Private property rights 
     supporters voted NO.


  house vote #9: funding for national trust for historic preservation

       An amendment to the Fiscal year 1996 Interior 
     Appropriations bill (H.R. 1977) by Rep. Tim Hutchinson (R-AR) 
     would have eliminated the $3.5 million provided in the bill 
     for the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The House 
     Appropriations Committee had already decided to defund the 
     trust over 2 years but the Hutchinson Amendment would have 
     cut the funds immediately. The Hutchinson Amendment was 
     defeated 129-281 on July 13, 1995. The private property 
     position was YES.

        house vote #10: east mojave national preserve management

       Congress passed the California Desert Act as one of the 
     last things it did in the 103rd Congress in 1994. In 1995, 
     Representative Jerry Lewis (R-CA) inserted a provision in the 
     FY 1996 Interior Appropriations bill (H.R. 1977) that kept 
     management of the East Mojave National Preserve in the hands 
     of the Bureau of Land Management instead of turning it over 
     to the National Park Service as planned in the California 
     Desert Act. Rep. Vic Fazio (D-CA) offered an amendment to 
     turn the area over to the National Park Service and transfer 
     $600,000 given to the BLM to manage the area to the Park 
     Service. The Fazio Amendment was defeated by a vote of 174-
     227 on July 13, 1995. The private property rights provision 
     was a NO vote.


     house vote #11: no more roads in forest service roadless areas

       Rep. Joseph Kennedy (D-RI) offered an amendment to the FY 
     1996 Interior Appropriations bill to stop the Forest Service 
     from constructing roads or preparing timber sales in roadless 
     areas of 3,000 acres or more. These areas have not been 
     designated by Congress as Wilderness and should not be 
     managed as such unless Congress determines otherwise. The 
     Kennedy Amendment was defeated by a vote of 155-255 on July 
     18, 1995. Private property rights advocates voted NO.


 house vote #12: controlling excesses of the environmental protection 
                              agency (epa)

       H.R. 2099, the bill funding Veterans Administration, 
     Department of Housing and Urban Development and Independent 
     Agencies contained 17 anti-regulatory provisions (called 
     riders) to reign in excesses by the EPA. Of greatest interest 
     to private landowners were riders dealing with the Clean 
     Water Act's onerous wetlands program. Representatives 
     Sherwood Boehlert (R-NY) and Louis Stokes (D-OH) offered an 
     amendment to strike the 17 anti-regulatory riders from H.R. 
     2099. The House, which had approved the Boehlert-Stokes 
     Amendment three days earlier, rejected it on July 31, 1995 on 
     a 210-210 tie vote. A yes vote supported the Clinton 
     Administration's position. Private property rights supporters 
     voted NO.


            house vote #13: political advocacy restrictions

       The Skaggs Amendment (David Skaggs (D-C)) aimed to strike 
     from the Labor-HHS Appropriations bill (H.R. 2127) language 
     opposed by liberals that prohibits any Federal grant from 
     going to any group that has spent over 5% of its annual non-
     governmental income in any of the previous five years on 
     political advocacy, including lobbying.  The Skaggs Amendment 
     was defeated 187 to 232. The private property position was 
     a NO.


             House Vote #14: NATIONAL PARK SYSTEM OVERHAUL

       H.R. 260 offered by Rep. James Hansen (R-UT) would direct 
     the Interior Secretary to prepare a review of National Park 
     Service operations within two years of enactment and make 
     recommendations to Congress on improvements such as closing 
     parks or changing management practices. There are well 
     recognized financial and other problems in the National 
     Parks. The agency is billions of dollars behind in deferred 
     maintenance and land acquisition. The Hansen bill only asked 
     the Park Service to make recommendations for changes. It did 
     not make any immediate changes. However, in the new highly 
     partisan House the proposal was defeated 180 to 231 on 
     September 19, 1995. A no vote was in support of the 
     President's position. Private property advocates voted YES.


                     House Vote #15: MINING PATENTS

       The House added an amendment to the FY 1996 Interior 
     Appropriations bill (H.R. 1977) extending the moratorium on 
     mining patents for another year. The Senate rejected this 
     amendment and substituted an amendment which ended the 
     moratorium and raised the price charged for a patent to fair 
     market value. The conference committee concurred with the 
     Senate. Representative Sidney Yates (D-IL) offered a motion 
     on the House floor to recommit the FY 1996 Interior 
     Appropriations bill (H.R. 1977) to the House-Senate 
     conference committee with instructions to include a one year 
     ban on expending money for processing or granting mining 
     patents. The Yates motion passed 277-147 on September 29, 
     1995. A vote for the motion was a vote to deny many mining 
     claimants their property rights. A no vote was the vote to 
     protect property rights (See vote #6 in the Senate).

                                                                                        HOUSE SCOREBOARD

                   TRIBUTE TO HISPANIC BUSINESS WEEK

                                 ______
                                 

                        HON. WILLIAM J. MARTINI

                             of new jersey

                    in the house of representatives

                        Monday, October 21, 1996

  Mr. MARTINI. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in acknowledgment of the 
upcoming Hispanic Business Week in New Jersey.
  Mr. Speaker, America is a hardworking society. We are a society built 
on the principles of growth for the individual, as well as advancement 
of our community as a whole. Within this context, we can see the vital 
importance for activists, community builders, and skilled 
professionals. This, Mr. Speaker, is what the New Jersey Hispanic 
Chamber promotes.
  Mr. Speaker, in an era with significant economy shifts, the statewide 
Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has led our community in the effort to 
educate the Hispanic Business Community and its consumers. They have 
sought to encourage and support the entrepreneurs, the individuals, and 
the community as a whole. Through their education, our community has 
the opportunity to grow and develop into a better community.
  This year, Mr. Speaker, the statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce 
will sponsor Hispanic Business Week from October 21 to October 26. I am 
grateful to be invited to their sixth annual convention and exhibition 
during this historical week. Today, in acknowledgment and appreciation 
for their great efforts, I rise to recognize Hispanic Business Week--a 
step toward the future.
