House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) today released the following statement on the passage of the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act of 2011, H.R. 1904, that will help create thousands of jobs, enable development of our nation's copper resources, and generate billions in new revenue:
"With the passage of this bipartisan legislation, the House will clear the way for the development of our nation's copper resources and create an environment for economic growth. I thank Congressman Paul Gosar for sponsoring this bill that will help support the creation of thousands of new jobs and will play an important role to ensure American products are made with American resources. House Republicans remain focused on policies that will return prosperity and growth to our economy, and I urge the White House and the Senate to join us in these common sense efforts."
