house Bill H.R. 1138

Designating Federal Lands in Central Idaho as Wilderness Areas

Argument in favor

This bill makes an appropriate tradeoff between conserving wilderness areas for public enjoyment while also setting land aside for local governments to use how they see fit.

Central Idaho's wilderness areas are incredibly beautiful. Keep them wild. If you have a chance, visit Bighorn Crags in the Frank Church National Forest. I just did.

Argument opposed

The Sawtooth area should be made a national monument, rather than a wilderness area — as it would provide for an even higher level of wilderness conservation.

Idaho should have the full authority of what they want to do with this land, the federal government shouldn't be able to designate specific pieces of land for local government use, the state should designate areas for their best interests.

Let the state control this area. We have seen how the Office of Land Management has been used as a political pawn. Let the states have the land and get the federal government out of the land business. It was just another way the federal government tried to make money off of the citizen.

No federal land, it belongs to the States.
