“H.R. 6939: Restoring Local Input and Access to Public Lands” would end wilderness study areas without a single public meeting or town hall discussion.
Measure outside statewide effort by county-level citizen working groups would extinguish half of the wilderness study area acres in Wyoming.
The only thing the Wyoming Public Lands Initiative seems to be achieving is uniting conservationists against it.
Diverse local stakeholder-driven solutions can solve land management disputes, but only if the U.S. Rep. stops undermining the process.
Most state legislators from the area ask the U.S. representative not to preclude public involvement with land management legislation.
