There's a Bad Bill on the Rise
On April 17, the House of Representatives passed a bill that if signed into law could undo nearly five decades of wilderness protections. H.R. 4089, the so-called "Sportsmen's Heritage Act" is aimed at rolling back protections on public lands. The bill would:
• Open more than 109 million acres of wilderness areas to motor vehicle use.
• Take away the president's authority to designate National Monuments.
• Potentially open our wilderness areas to oil and gas drilling, logging, and mining.
Please contact your senators now and tell them to say no to this bill.
