Urge Your Senators to Vote No on Restrictive Land Use Bill
ARRA needs your help on the National Landscape Conservation System Act once again!
Please click the Take Action button below to send a letter to your Senators urging them to vote against omnibus legislation, S. 3213, that includes 150 public lands measures including the National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS) Act. S. 3213 would create more than a million acres of wilderness while authorizing dozens of studies for potential parks, protected rivers and historical landmarks in addition to statutorily establishing the NLCS. NLCS legislation (H.R. 2016) has already passed the full House of Representatives. If the Senate passes S. 3213, the NLCS Act will most assuredly be signed into law.
It is more important than ever for you to urge your Senators to vote against NLCS legislation in light of the recent launch of a Department of Interior (DOI) investigation of the existing NLCS division of the Bureau of Land Management. DOI initiated the investigation after reviewing emails and other documents that show extensive coordination between top NLCS officials and lobbyists for environmental groups as federal law generally prohibits federal employees from using appropriated funds or their official positions to lobby Congress.
Now is not the time to statutorily establish the NLCS. Please click the Take Action button below to urge your Senators to vote no on S. 3213
Send a letter to the following decision maker(s):
Below is the sample letter:
Subject: Please Oppose S. 3213
Dear [decision maker name automatically inserted here],
As a constituent and a member of Americans for Responsible Recreational Access I write in opposition to the National Landscape Conservation System Act and urge you to vote no on S. 3213.
As you know S. 3213 includes the provisions of S. 1139 that would statutorily establish the National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS). I am concerned that statutorily establishing the NLCS would result in legitimate recreation being locked out from large swaths of public lands. In addition, now is not the time to rush to pass NLCS legislation in light of the recent launch of a Department of Interior (DOI) investigation of the existing NLCS division of the Bureau of Land Management.
Thank you for your consideration.

What's At Stake:
NLCS legislation would create a bureaucracy to manage specially designated BLM lands. This bureaucracy would be tasked to "restore" the over 106 million acres of wilderness that is already off-limits to OHV, mountain bike and other forms of recreation as well as areas that currently can allow all types of recreational uses like wilderness study areas. You can bet they will "restore" these areas by limiting access and that they will be looking to add more land to "manage" through excluding legitimate forms of recreation.
