A bill (HR 621) has been introduced in the House by Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz that would direct the Secretary of the Interior to sell off public lands across western states much of which make up the Basin and Range Region we love so much!
It doesn't matter how you enjoy and use your public lands, be it hiking, bicycling, motorcycling, OHV driving, hunting, rock hounding, geocaching, horseback riding, flora and fauna spotting, ranching, guiding, etc....the selling off of public lands will have a huge impact. If you use and enjoy public lands please tell Rep. Chaffetz, along with the Representatives from your state, to keep public lands in public hands. Ask your Representatives to vote no on this misguided attempt to sell off what makes the west great!
Call (202)-224-3121, connect to your House Representative, not your Senator.
Thank you so much!
Below is a quick slideshow of a tiny fraction of your public lands!
