Senate Joint Resolution 5 (SJR-5) & Congressional Slap to BLM…

Assault on the American Wild Mustang…

The final draft article that includes committee and contact links relating to NV’s Legislative Committee on Public Lands’ proposed assault on BLM and wild horses (Senate Joint Resolution 5, or “SJR-5) has been posted to the War Room.  It can be accessed here:  http://www.aowha.org/war/nv_sjr5-01.html
Please note that according to Carrol Abel’s investigation, only two of the original Legislative Committee members who crafted this bit of skulduggery are still in the Nevada State Legislature.  Therefore if you comment to the current committees and/or legislators, please be courteous and informative.  Most had nothing to do with this language but they may well vote on it.
We have a chance to preserve sensible management of our public lands and work toward more practical options when it comes to free-roaming horses and burros – provided that we constructively get involved.
From my perspective our message needs to include the premise that confrontation over public lands use is non-constructive and negatively impacts Nevada as well as our public ranges, wildlife and horses.  The new Legislature needs to chart a fresh course that could lead to sustainable solutions.
There is also another recent addition to the War Room materials.  Please view Voodoo Science on the Range if you haven’t already done so.  http://www.aowha.org/war/wafwa_editorial_110204.html  This is the kind of foolishness we’re trying to combat, for everyone’s benefit.

Also, Congress is apparently starting to get fed up.  Please read-

    after watching the documentary Gasland on HBO the other nite i am horrified at how the blm is managing our public lands – removing wild life and giving the land away to huge oil companies without regard for the health of the people living around the oil and natural gas wells – i hope this congress does something to stop the funding
