Legislative Threat to America’s Public Lands and Wildlife
Today, the U.S. House of Representatives will begin consideration of H.R. 3590, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act of 2013. Under the guise of expanding hunting and fishing access on public lands, H.R. 3590 combines several anti-wildlife proposals into a single dangerous bill that threatens the future of America’s public lands and wildlife.
If passed, the bill will exclude national wildlife refuge management decisions from environmental review and public input. An extremely dangerous loophole… The bill also aims to open vital wilderness areas to damaging construction projects as well as recreational hunting and shooting on FEDERAL lands.
