Rosendale a Threat to Public Lands

Submitted by vsample on Mon, 2018-07-02 07:22


Montanans will be hard-pressed to find a public official in our state whose record on public lands is more atrocious than wealthy East Coast developer Matt Rosendale’s record.

Although the majority of Montanans have made clear they want to protect our public access to public lands, Rosendale actually supports eliminating protections from more than half a million acres of public lands in legislation described as “the biggest rollback of public lands protections in state history.”

Meanwhile, Rosendale opposes legislation highly popular with Montanans that would strengthen protections for about 80,000 acres of public land and identify new areas for timber harvest and motorized recreation. Go figure.

He’s also called multiple times for transferring public lands and consistently supported measures that could make it easier to sell off our public lands.
