Honorable Speaker of the House and Mr. President:
Please DO NOT pass bill S.1459 as it currently is written. The bill is not a
major improvement over prior versions. The compromise version of S.1459 is
still not a good bill. Current regulations need to be given more time to
work. I am urging you to not pass this bill and I am informing everyone I
can including local supporters.
The nation's public rangelands--270 million acres of Forest Service and BLM
rangelands--sustain some of our best coldwater fisheries. Native species on
the brink of extinction, such as Gila, Apache, and Lahontan cutthroat trout,
will survive only if grazing on public lands is better managed.
