Legislation that Would Close Public Lands to Many Forms of Recreation Reintroduced


Mar 24, 2005
I had posted this in the Pacific Northwest forum, but this affects your area too.

"Please click the Take Action button below to let your Member of Congress know that you oppose H.R. 980, the "Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act." H.R. 980 would designate 23 million acres of land in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming, as Wilderness. This means each of these 23 million acres would be made permanently off-limits to motorized and mechanized recreation, including off-highway motorcycles, ATVs, 4x4s, snowmobiles and mountain bikes."

For more info checkout Americans For Responsible Recreational Areas (ARRA) website. They provide a sample letter and link to send to your Representative.
