Legislative Watch: Thanks to You, the Attempted Land Grab Fails!

WOC Legislative Session_350Great news! The land grab bills we warned you about yesterday will not advance in the Wyoming State House of Representatives.

HB 126 – Public land access was voted down 52-7, and the House stopped hearing new bills before HB 142 – Transfer of public lands could be considered, meaning both are dead for the rest of the session.

This victory is a direct result of your involvement. Legislators heard from their constituents loud and clear that public lands are an essential part of Wyoming’s quality of life, and we do not want to see them sold off to the highest bidder. Thank you for reaching out to your legislators, and thanks to our many recreation, sportsmen, and other conservation group partners for their roles in this effort!
