Senator Tester (MT-D) announced last Friday that he has
included his Montana Wilderness Bill in a Senate Appropriations Bill. As
you recall, this bill locks up Mt.
Wilderness. Folks from all over Montana
are fighting back but they need our help.
There are some who say they would not be surprised to see
him get it through the Senate but the House of Representatives is another
story. Congressman Mike Simpson is in a key position to make sure that doesn't
happen. It is our responsibility to let the Congressman know how important
Mt. Jefferson is to us and to ask for his
It won't take you long but it will make a difference.
Please send the following message or something like it to Lindsay.Slater@mail.house.gov today. Also, tell all your friends and
family to also send a message.
"Congressman Simpson, please do everything you can to make
sure that Senator Tester's Forest Jobs and Recreation Act does not make it
through the house because it will limit jobs and recreation opportunities in Idaho. Thank
you for your help."
Leave your name and address.
Also, as mentioned above, many in Montana are fighting back and working to defeat
Sen. Tester in this year's election. The snowmobile community in Montana is raising funds
to do a media campaign. If you can help with any amount, send the money
