Wild and Scenic River protection
Author Last Post
Well, hooray! The Natural Resources Management Act passed the House of Representatives, 363 - 62! If the President signs it, we will have 621 miles of new Wild and Scenic rivers. Thanks to everyone who took the time to contact their Senators and Representative. 
Oops! Try this link - it's faster:
  The Senate has passed a Public Lands bill, with provisions for several new Wild and Scenic rivers. I like to think that our voices made a difference. Now it has to pass in the House of Representatives. Keep up the pressure, and email your Representative (with a little help from American Whitewater)!

Fellow members;

  Senate bill S.47, now under bipartisan consideration, will protect 600 miles of Wild and Scenic Rivers. It needs our support. This site, courtesy of American Whitewater, makes it easy to show your support to your Senators and Representatives:

Future generations will thank us.
