Omnibus Public Lands Bill is still alive and to be voted on Monday March 16!
Thursday 12 March
was a sad day for Americans who enjoy traveling the great
outdoors and for international observers of the US law making
One of the biggest
land use Bills, the once named Omnibus Bill, now tacked onto H.R.
146, has been engineered in Congress to allow minimal discussion
despite its complexity and huge implications to 4x4 recreation,
energy resources etc..
It is vital that you
call or email your Senators and representatives immediately,
to demand that they vote NO to the passage of H.R. 146 in its
present form. The House votes on Monday afternoon.

The irony is that
H.R. 146 is the Revolutionary War
and War of 1812 Battlefield Protection Act Bill,
to recognise those sites in US history where citizens died for their
UFWDA international vice-president
