Response to The largest PUBLIC lands rally this year & maybe ever!

I received this email today from Idahoans For PUBLIC Lands.

"We did it.

After putting on the biggest public lands rally in the West, Idahoans prevented a single anti-public lands bill from being introduced in the State Capitol.

On a rainy day in March, more than 3,000 people rallied at the Idaho State Capitol to show our support for public lands.

For 80 days, Idaho lawmakers churned out more than 615 seperate pieces of legislation. And for the first time in four years, NOT ONE bill was indroduced advocating for the "disposal" of public lands.

Now that the State Legislature has adjourned for the year, its time to congratulate ourselves for sending a powerful message to Idaho politicians: Keep your hands off our public lands.

But our work is not over. There are still major threats from powerful politicians who are determined to give our public lands to special interests.

Together, we are going to stop them."

From Ray:
That is truly an achievement, considering that Idaho has one of the best legislatures that money can buy.
Big congrats to all that participated.
