On the first day of its legislative session, the House passed a “rules package” containing a provision intended to pave the way for transferring or selling off our public land. This provision says that lawmakers can ignore the costs of transfers of public land, as if they have no cost to the federal government or taxpayers.
Lawmakers have tried to sell off public lands before, and they apparently will try again. Your lawmakers need to know that the American people do not want to see our public lands given away—write today to tell them what public lands mean to you and that you won’t stand for public land sell off proposals. If you can, take 30 seconds to personalize your message or the subject line, which makes a huge difference for how carefully an office reads it.
