Montana Senator Daines bill would release wilderness study areas for other uses

December 7, 2017View for printing

Five wilderness study areas left in legislative limbo for 35 years would be released to multiple use planning under a proposed bill by Sen. Steve Daines, R-Montana.

“He’s on a single-minded mission to minimize wilderness protections everywhere in the state,” Nickas said. “This bill is a classic example of it. Just because he wore a backpack once upon a time doesn’t make him a wilderness advocate.”
