Kudos to you, my Representative, Jared Golden, for a yes vote. We in Maine have beautiful lands and wonderful parks, including Acadia National Park. We know how important such places are, to we who are fortunate to live here, and those fortunate enough to visit - we all need our wild areas for their beauty, their history, their contribution ecologically and economically to the areas around them. The other wild areas covered in this bill, as well as ones not in this bill that are under threat of development deserve such protection. Public lands belong to the public.
This bill should be passed by the Senate as well. When it comes up for vote, please support this bill, Senators King and Collins.
