Idaho Senators try to pressure Tester to remove an area from his “wilderness bill”

Idaho snowmobile interests “own” the Idaho side of the Centennial Mountains, yet still want Mt. Jefferson on the Montana side removed from bill-

Conflicting Interests. Written by Mark Menlove. Backcountry Magazine.

I see that conservation groups who support Senator Tester’s  “Forest Jobs and Recreation Act (FJRA)” (a.k.a. “wilderness bill”) are waging a campaign to keep the area in the bill. The Idaho-based Blue Ribbon Coalition is using the Idaho senators to try to get Tester and Baucus to fold.

    This is just another example of why we need to deal with the remaining areas on a larger scale, which is Vilsack’s official position on roadless, and not let them try to incrementally pick us to pieces.

    Mikarooni – Couldn’t agree more.

    A top down approach is the only way to get thugs like the Blue Ribbon Coalition to listen.
