senate Bill S. 827

Should 23 Million Acres of Land in the Northern Rockies Be Designated as Wilderness?

Argument in favor

The Northern Rockies ecosystem is an important part of America’s natural history heritage. It should be preserved and protected by designating it as federally designated wilderness. This bill would protect plants, animals and the environment to all Americans’ benefit.

And, how about if we don't drill for oil or minerals either?

The preservation of wild clean spaces should be a priority for the Dept of the Interior.

It’s important to preserve and protect our natural habitats along with their wildlife. We cannot continue to use land for factories that burn fossil fuels which are harmful to the environment. Plus, these areas would be wonderful for tourism and these states can use the land as national parks and make good money from them. Wildlife in North America cannot continue to be endangered by human activity and it is vital we defend this land.

Argument opposed

Eliminating federally subsidized development in 23 million acres of Northern Rockies land would hurt multiple states’ economies and workers. Additionally, this bill doesn’t take local opinions and perspectives into consideration, compromising its ability to take context into account.

1. This should be at the request of the states—no Congressmen who probably haven’t even visited these areas. 2. Taking cate of state lands should rest with the state. 3. The government has already sppropriated and taken too much land. The effectively own Nevada, for example. 4. This will hurt rural communities. 5. Conservation of land should be done but not governmental guidelines. Those guidelines already negatively impact current lands.

Where in the constitution was the federal government delegated the authority to “designate” land? Correct me if I’m mistaken but the federal government can have no power which isn’t delegated to it by the sovereign (we the people with inalienable rights). Since none of us have the right to do as this legislation proposes, it cannot be delegated, and government cannot legitimately and lawfully make this law.

Every time the Feds secure land we lose the right to venture on to the land except by foot. Leave the securing land up to the states. BLM and US Forest Service have enough on their plate. Vote no on this Bill

    👍🏻 SENATE BILL S.827 AKA Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act (NREPA) 👍🏻 While I don’t claim being an Environmentalist, I’m in support of and recommend the passage of the the Senate Bill S.827 AKA the ‘’Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act (NREPA)”, which would designate certain National Forest System land and certain public land under the Secretary of the Interior’s jurisdiction in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming as federally designated wilderness, wild and scenic rivers, wildland recovery areas and biological connecting corridors. The Northern Rockies ecosystem is an important part of America’s natural history heritage. It should be preserved and protected by designating it as federally designated wilderness. This bill would protect plants, animals and the environment to all Americans’ benefit. SneakyPete..... 👍🏻👍🏻 S.827 👍🏻👍🏻. 6.15.18.....

    We are responsible for our wilderness and especially for the animals that live in it. They have just as much right to life as humans. We keep pushing more animals into extinction. We had better learn real soon how interconnected all the species on the earth are, or sometime in the future humans will become extinct as well.

    We need more designated national parks due to increase in population and use of such places. Without the national parks private companies and rich people will destro such habitats for their own wealth

    We need to identify and preserve key wilderness, watersheds, and wildlife corridors while we can. Our generation does not own this land, we are only renting it till our children, grandchildren, etc., replace us.

    #45 has made it clear as day that he couldn’t care less about the environment in which he himself is unfortunately included in. What he doesn’t realize is that the wilderness is as absolutely necessary. Mother Nature knew exactly what she was doing. Let’s keep it that way.
