We need your help to continue to show strong public opposition to the agenda to seize our national forests and other public lands. An important meeting is coming up in Cheyenne.

Next week, a subcommittee of the Legislature’s Federal Natural Resource committee will hold a public meeting to hear what the public thinks about a proposed constitutional amendment that would pave the way for state takeover of public land. This bill continues a long effort—pushed by a few legislators—to advance state takeover and probable sale of our public lands.

Federal Natural Resource Management Subcommittee Meeting
When: Wednesday, December 14, 2-5 p.m.
Where: Jonah Business Center, Room L-54
3001 E Pershing Blvd.  Cheyenne, WY

Please attend the meeting in person if you can! We need citizens to speak out against this land grab effort. Even if you don’t want to speak, your presence will support others who are there and send a strong message to legislators. Contrary to what the proponents say, this amendment does not prohibit the sale of public lands. It leaves the door open for future privatization and loss of access to our outdoor heritage.

You’re also invited to join us for a free citizen orientation before the meeting, where you can learn more and get your questions answered. We’ll provide background information and talking points for those who wish to offer comments during the hearing. Lunch will be provided. RSVP here.

Free Pre-Meeting Citizen Orientation
When: 
Wednesday, December 14, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Where: Laramie County Public Library, Cottonwood Room
2200 Pioneer Ave.  Cheyenne, WY

Learn more about the proposed constitutional amendment in this blog post or check out our fact sheet. If you can’t make it to Cheyenne next week, please e-mail the committee (and be sure to cc your newly-elected legislators) to let them know our public lands are not for sale. Please contact me if you have any questions.
