Grijalva bill would require Homeland Security to follow environmental laws when considering security programs

A bill that would force Homeland Security to obey environmental laws when considering border security programs was introduced in Congress by U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva.

The legislation would compel Homeland officials to consult with state, local and tribal governments on security programs that may impact the environment and health.

The southern Arizona Democrat is chairman of the House Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands.

His bill would:

• Require Homeland Security to consult with federal land managers, along with state, local and tribal governments in creating an effective border protection strategy while protecting federal and tribal lands.

• Ensure that laws protecting air, water, wildlife, culture, and health and public safety “are fully upheld.”

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
