Weigh In to Encourage Your Senators to Reject Omnibus Approach

It is time to have your voice heard again as 10 Democratic Senators sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) urging him to move a new public lands omnibus bill during the current “lame duck” session of Congress. The legislation would limit access to more than two million acres of public lands in 13 states, while creating new national parks, monuments and wilderness areas and may include other provisions.

As you will recall Congress used procedural gimmicks to enact a similar omnibus bill in 2009, and we must make it clear to Congress that passing massive omnibus bills at the 11th hour is no way to manage our public lands.

Please click the Take Action link below to let your Senators know you oppose a new massive omnibus public lands law and that a repeat of the 2009 law will mean more restrictions to access.

TAKE ACTION!

The ARRA newsletter is on our homepage. It's not a bad idea to skim through it monthly just to keep an eye on what is going on. Also on the homepage is Interior Trails Quarterly and if you haven't read it yet, there is a section on our trailwork (beginning anyway!) and our involvement with the 100 mile loop.
