Tester Slams House Assault on Public Lands

Senator to House: Not on my Watch

(US Senate) – Senator Jon Tester issued the following statement after the House voted to make it easier to sell off federal lands:

“This vote by the House is an underhanded assault on Montana’s outdoor economy, our hunting heritage, and our way of life. Public lands belong to all Americans and Congress should be safeguarding them, not clearing the way to auction them off to the highest bidder. I ask all those who care about our public lands to join me in demanding more public access, not more attacks on our public lands, from their representatives in the House.”
