Throughout the West, there is an ugly movement to give parts of our
national forests, parks, refuges and other wild areas to the states. If this
happens, beloved recreation lands can easily be sold to mining, oil and gas and
This movement has reared its head in state
legislatures throughout the West and even in our U.S. Congress.
In 2015, the U.S. Senate
voted to pave the way for selling tracts of our national forests, wilderness areas
and wildlife refuges to states that are eager to open them up to sale or lease
for oil and gas drilling, mining and logging, jeopardizing public access.
This move only furthers a disturbing trend in the war
on our public lands.
We must stop this madness before it takes hold.
