Stop the Public Lands Giveaway!

In January 2003, the Bush administration revived a 137-year-old loophole - known as RS 2477 - to allow special interests to convert old livestock trails, footpaths, even streambeds on our public lands into paved highways. Private interests could use this loophole to plow a spider web of roads through National Parks, Wildlife Refuges, National Forests, Wilderness Areas and potential wildlands. This amounts to a massive giveaway of the special places Americans cherish. (Learn more about RS 2477 and the administrationís efforts to revive the loophole).

Alert: In October 2006 New Mexico congressman Steve Pearce introduced a bill that would virtually give away public lands to counties and states.
