There is the possibility of some public land protection legislation being attached to a last minute federal year-end bill. If you're interested please read and use the easy link to send a message to your senators and representative. Permanent LWCF funding would be huge for maintenance of recreation infrastructure in the northwest.
The Outdoor Alliance sent this report on the failed effort to get this legislation passed. They will be trying again in January.
Thanks so much for writing your elected officials about the end of year public lands package. The package came to the Senate floor last night, where many elected officials spoke passionately in support, including Sen. Murkowski, Sen. Gardner, Sen. Daines, and Sen. Cantwell. If you live in Alaska, Colorado, Montana, or Washington, these folks deserve a lot of thanks.
In the end, the package didn't pass, because Utah Senator Mike Lee stood up and refused to allow a vote unless the Senate was willing to add a provision barring the use of the Antiquities Act (what creates National Monuments) in Utah.
I have no idea. I tried searching but like most news, the published reports only go skin deep. I think you have to be on the inside to know what's really going on. I'm not personally involved other than sending messages to my representatives.
