Rep. Chaffetz, the author of HR 621, which would seek to sell/transfer 3.3 million acres of federal land, posted this a few hours ago:
I am withdrawing HR 621. I'm a proud gun owner, hunter and love our public lands. The bill would have disposed of small parcels of lands Pres. Clinton identified as serving no public purpose but groups I support and care about fear it sends the wrong message. The bill was originally introduced several years ago. I look forward to working with you. I hear you and HR 621 dies tomorrow. #keepitpublic #tbt
Nevertheless, there’s a great deal of other legislation (or, reversal of Executive Orders) in the works. One is a repeal of the Stream Protection Rule.
So, I’m keeping my appointment with Congressman Joe Kennedy. If there is other anti-wildlife legislation you think I should bring up with him, please let me know.
