Montana Wilderness Bill Threatens Snowmobiling on Mt. Jefferson - Action Needed Now‏
From: BRC Alert (noreply@sharetrails.org)

BLUERIBBON COALITION ACTION ALERT!

MONTANA WILDERNESS BILL MOVING IN COMMITTEE
ACTION NEEDED NOW - BEFORE IT GETS PUT IN OMNIBUS!

Dear friends,

Of all the proposed Wilderness bills (there are dozens), Montana Senator Jon Tester's oddly-named "Forest Jobs and Recreation Act" is most likely to move ahead this year. The bill is scheduled for a Senate Subcommittee hearing on December 17, 2009.

We need you to CLICK HERE and take action today - BEFORE the bill gets shoved into some stupid Omnibus bill!

IMPORTANT NOTE
We want to be clear about this. This is a very dangerous situation. Tester's bill has numerous and serious flaws. Senate staff have said they are planning to fix the problems via amendment, but the bill is in committee without one single change.

In addition to locking away more than 600,000 acres of public lands as Wilderness, this bill will permanently close one of the most popular snowmobile destinations open today - Mount Jefferson.

The "sled heads" on BRC's Action Alert list will recognize the name. Mount Jefferson is known as the "Crown Jewel of Western Snowmobiling" and has been in the cross-hairs of the radical anti-snowmobiling groups for decades. However, the new Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest planning process resulted in a compromise solution that kept most of the popular snowmobile areas open. This compromise represents a hard-fought and, sadly, uncommon victory for the snowmobile community.

IT GETS WORSE:
As noted in an article printed in BRC's Magazine about the bill, it is nearly impossible to determine what impacts this bill will have on lands outside of the Wilderness it creates. Recently, we learned that Tester's bill will close the Italian Peaks - Divide Creek-Weber Lake Trail (#1111). The Weber Lake-Divide Creek Trail #1111 is one of the few high-alpine motorcycle single track trails left open in this region.

TODAY is the day to make a difference on this bill. DO NOT wait until this bill gets pushed through via some Omnibus package "all or nothing" deal.

Click here to take action.
