A Different Shade of Green
Despite assurances by House Resources Committee Chairman Richard Pombo that the reconciliation package he proposed would not make any national park lands available for sale, a new draft proposes to do just that. The new version, scheduled for a vote tomorrow morning, would make available for sale lands that contain mineral deposits, including park lands where those deposits previously have been mined, for development or hard rock mining.|
Sound the alarm! Tell Congress to reject this dangerous provision that would sell national park lands for mining and commercial development!
