"Now (he president has begun to do the same kind of jig on the strip mining bill, and that one is now in Udall said. Strip mining legislation, which passed the senate overwhelmingly last October, was voted out of the house interior committee in May after extensive amendments and still must clear the house rules committee before floor consideration.

"But it's going to take a public firestorm to match the incredible pressure that was brought on the congress yesterday."
