2017 Annual Report
Proposals being considered in the House of Representatives would allow damaging logging practices in some of our wildest “roadless” forests.
Today it submitted a notice of intent to begin an environmental scoping on a proposed lease sale that could be held as early as next year.
The legislation would secure protections for nearly 60,000 acres in the heart of the San Juan Mountains. Half of the acreage would expand or create wilderness for the Mt. Sneffels Range, Lizard Head area and McKenna Peak.
The bill was introduced by Republican members of the House Agriculture Committee on April 12 and was approved, without amendments, by the Committee in a party-line vote on April 18.
