Legislation is advancing in Congress to remove protections for more than 60 million acres of public lands an area the size of Wyoming. More than half of America’s forests and deserts would be open to industrial development and off-road vehicle use. Please ask your Members of Congress to oppose this legislation.
The Wilderness and Roadless Area Release Act, introduced by Rep. Kevin McCarthy and Sen. John Barrasso, would take away protections that have been in place for decades. Industrial activities like mining, logging and drilling are already allowed on more than half of our national forests and other public lands. This bill proposes to open up most of the rest.
