The Senate passed three new wilderness bills, sending them to the House for future consideration...three bills that would designate over 700,000 acres of public lands as wilderness. Within designated wilderness areas, "there shall be no temporary (or permanent) road, no use of motor vehicles, motorized equipment or motorboats, no landing of aircraft, no other form of mechanized transport, and no structure or installation within any such area."

The first bill, S. 128, would designate 300,000 acres in northern California as wilderness. The area includes portions of Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Mendocino, and Napa counties. Additionally, the proposal includes making the Black Butte River a wild and scenic river. To read the bill, click here.

The Wild Sky Wilderness Bill, S. 152, would set aside 106,000 acres in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest (Washington) as wilderness. This bill has passed the Senate twice before without being acted on in the House of Representatives. To read S. 152, click here.

The third wilderness bill, S. 272, designates parts of the Caribbean National Forest and the Luquillo Experimental Forest in Puerto Rico as wilderness. To read S. 272, click here.

The ARRA (Americans for Responsible Recreational Access) strongly recommends writing to the House Resources Committee in order to oppose these and other efforts to restrict access to public lands.
