HOT OFF THE PRESSES...

S. 1087, a Senate Bill identical to H.R. 1581: (the “Wilderness and Roadless Area Release Act of 2011) was introduced in the Senate on 05/26/2011 sponsored by Senator Barrasso.

S. 1087: A bill to release wilderness study areas administered by the Bureau of Land Management that are... (GovTrack.us)

There are currently four cosponsors, time to start firing off emails, letters and phone calls to our Senators on the Hill asking them to cosponsor and support this legislation and the same with our our Reps in Congress regarding H.R.1581.

The full text of the legislation is not available at this time nor does it have an official short title but something should be released this week. The big guns in the Land Access/Rights battle should have a determination regarding what is going on and letter generators up shortly.

Kudos to those who have already taken action and spent two minutes to fire off an email, letter or phone call urging your Representative to cosponsor the House Bill H.R 1581.

Folks who haven’t done so yet, please make the time to weigh in with our Public Servants on both Bills urging them to cosponsor and support this important Legislation.


“S.1087 : A bill to release wilderness study areas administered by the Bureau of Land Management that are not suitable for wilderness designation from continued management as de facto wilderness areas and to release inventoried roadless areas within the National Forest System that are not recommended for wilderness designation from the land use restrictions of the 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Final Rule and the 2005 State Petitions for Inventoried Roadless Area Management Final Rule, and for other purposes.

Sponsor: Sen Barrasso, John [WY] (introduced 5/26/2011) Cosponsors (4)
Committees: Senate Energy and Natural Resources
Latest Major Action: 5/26/2011 Referred to Senate committee. Status: Read twice and referred to the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.”

Please give this post a “Bump” for other forum members when you’ve taken action on S. 1087!

Don't you have any land that they are using for wilderness study...in your State...crap I thought they studied in every state..
There is some where the "extinct ivory billed woodpecker was found". It is too swampy for riding though. Some in the western part of the state. So called wilderness areas. What I was referring to was the fact that if it concerns one of us, sooner or later in one form or fashion it will concern all of us, if we remain lackadaisical.
