Some misguided members of Congress have wasted no time post-election in pushing bad public land seizure legislation. These bills are aimed at transferring ownership and selling off the lands and waters that American sportsmen and our families have been enjoying this fall.
This past Tuesday the House Natural Resources Sub-committee on Energy and Mineral Resources held a hearing on legislation that would seize our public lands, waters, and natural resources. H.R. 866 and H.R. 1484 would deliver blatant handouts to special interests who stand to gain financially from the seizure of our public lands and natural resources. These bills are not only an assault on our unique American birthright, they would result in the direct loss of public access and opportunities for hunting, fishing, and outdoor recreation.
