Public Lands Alert for Wyoming Residents!

December 6, 2016

Help us continue to show strong public opposition to the agenda to seize our national forests & other public lands

 

Your Presence is needed in Cheyenne - Wednesday, December 14th

 

What?  A sub-committee of the legislature's Select Federal Natural Resource committee is holding a public hearing on a constitutional amendment to pave the way for state takeover

 of our public lands.

 

When?  Wednesday, December 14th, 2 - 5 p.m.

 

Where?  Jonah Business Center, Rm. L-54; 3001 E. Pershing Blvd., Cheyenne, WY.

 

Why?  This bill continues the extremist agenda to promote public land transfer to the state.  Contrary to what the proponents say, this draft legislation leaves the door wide open for sale of our public lands and loss of public access.

 

Who?  You! We need people to attend this meeting and speak out against this land grab agenda.
