Call now!!!!!

TU is pushing the Wilderness Omnibus bill!!!!!!

This will close a TON of public lands to OHV users!!!

CALL NOW AND TELL YOUR REP THAT YOU OPPOSE THIS BILL!!!





Action Alert | January 09, 2008

As early as Sunday, January 11, the Senate will consider and vote on a major package of public lands bills. This package contains over 100 bills, each one of which protects important public lands around the country. Please visit our online action center to support the Senate omnibus public lands package, S. 22, and to tell your senator to vote in favor of passage. If the Senate successfully passes the package, then the U.S. House of Representatives will need to hold a successful floor vote before sending it onto the President.

WHY WE CARE
Trout Unlimited's Public Lands Initiative has worked hard to move several of these bills through Congress. These are some of TU's top legislative priorities, some of which we have been working on for years.

In Wyoming, the Sportsmen for the Wyoming Range coalition generated local support among hunters, anglers, outfitters and guides, to protect 1.2 million acres of public lands from energy development. The Wyoming Range is home to pristine waterways and wildlife habitat, making it an ideal place to hunt, fish and recreate.
In Oregon, Trout Unlimited has been at the forefront of the only sportsmen-led wilderness campaign in the country. The Sportsmen for Copper-Salmon coalition has been working to protect one of the last intact watersheds on the southern Oregon coast by supporting the 13,700 acre Copper-Salmon Wilderness Act. Few watersheds in Oregon can match the Elk River drainage and its healthy runs of wild winter steelhead, fall Chinook, coho salmon and sea-run cutthroat trout.
Idaho's Owyhee Wilderness bill would protect 517,000 acres of wilderness and nearly 316 miles of Wild and Scenic Owyhee River and tributaries.
The McKeon-Boxer California Wilderness provisions of the bill would designate as wilderness 470,000 acres along the East Side of the Sierra Nevada range and in the northern San Gabriel Mountains, and would designate stretches of three rivers as Wild and Scenic, including the Upper Owens River and Piru Creek, which are famous trout fisheries.
And in California, the San Joaquin River Settlement Act will authorize and fund numerous fisheries and watershed restoration actions pursuant to the settlement of legal actions regarding Friant Dam. Passage of this bill will end one of California’s longest-running water wars and allow implementation to move forward.
WHAT YOU CAN DO

Call the Capitol switchboard at 202-244-3121 and ask to be connected to the office of your Senator.

Visit our online action center today and write to your senators, let them know that you strongly support the public lands package (S.22) and encourage them to vote in favor of passage when it comes to the floor.

Sincerely,
--

Posted on the 4 local sites here with constant bumps to keep it near the top. Had entire family call local reps. Also sent emails to all them.

Got the 'political promise' of looking at all the facts. Doesn't sound hopeful.
