10 Days to Protect Exploration Access in Pershing County
Pershing County has proposed a public lands bill that would:
- Release 120,000 acres of Wilderness Study Area (WSA),
- Designate 160,000 acres of new wilderness (not all in Pershing County) including several areas that are NOT WSA,
- Resolve (i. e., sell “eligible” lands of) an unknown fraction of nearly 2 million acres of checkerboard lands, and
- Provide for land conveyances (i. e., sale of specified lands), including to mining companies.
You can help shape this draft legislation and keep important lands open to minerals activities. Your voice is needed for on-the-ground specifics.
