No public input
Congressman Gianforte and Senator Daines have each presented bills that will remove protections for 700,000 acres and 450,000 acres respectively of our treasured WSA (Wilderness Study Area) lands.
We Montanans love our wild open country. We understand that once these protections are taken away, there is no turning back. The part of this that bothers me the most is that neither representative asked for or entertained public input before making this decision.
I question what special interests are more important to Representative Gianforte and Senator Daines than the opinions from those who elected them into office.
