Daines submits

legislation to remove 449,500 acres from

Montana's Wilderness Study Areas

Public lands and protections remain a hot topic in Washington D.C.  Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., introduced legislation to remove 449,500 acres in Montana's Wilderness Study Areas. Daines describes the "Protect Public Use of Public Lands Act" as an effort to follow bottom-up requests from the state legislature and local communities."40 years of D.C. paralysis has frozen our access and use of public lands. It’s time topublic lands in public hands.”

The WSAs included in Daines' proposed legislation are the same areas included inRep. Kerry White (R) of Bozeman's House Joint Resolution 9 that passed 60-40 in the House and 33-17 in the Senate in 2017. HJ 9 asked the U.S. Congress to address Montana’s seven WSAs on National Forest System Lands. Daines has received support from theMining Association, Citizens for Balanced Use, Big Game Forever,Snowmobile Association,State Resource Association, the Beaverhead County Commissioners, Ravalli County Commissioners, Judith Basin County Commissioners,Farm Bureau Federation, Montana Snowmobile Association and The Capital Trail Vehicle Association, among others.

New York State Wins 2 Key Decisions for

Snowmobiling in the Adirondacks!

An Albany judge has upheld the state’s construction of new snowmobile trails in the Adirondacks, which had been opposed by an environmental group.


Acting state Supreme Court Justice Gerald W. Connolly issued a recent ruling that cutting the new trails would not violate the Forever Wild clause of the state Constitution that protects the Adirondack forest preserve from development, including timber cutting. Cutting the trees needed for snowmobile trails does "not constitute an improper use of the preserve which impairs the wild forest lands to an unconstitutional extent,” Connolly wrote.


The approximately 36 miles of trails in question are known as "community connectors” that link the towns of Newcomb, Minerva and North Hudson. The entire system is slated for completion in 2020. Much of the trails are complete but construction on parts of the project were halted due to the lawsuit.

In another contentious issue, the Adirondack Park Agency voted to approve a compromise in the Unit Management Plan for the Boreas Ponds Tract.  The plan allows for parts to be classified as wilderness and parts as wild forest, which allows continued motorized use to connect communities via trail!
