Public interest and environmental conservation aren't usually two issues that go hand in hand. And that's exactly the problem with a bill that's currently waiting to be voted upon in the Senate. Under the guise of animal population management, the Sportsmen's Heritage Bill (H.R. 4089) would allow for industrialization such as logging and road construction in America's wilderness. It claims these allowances will promote recreational hunting and consequently profits associated with hunting permits.
But hunting and fishing are already allowed in much of Americas wilderness. The only difference would be increased industrial activity.
H.R. 4089 is sneaky. It's trying to "promote conservation" by making way for industrial development. Does anyone see anything wrong with that logic?
Sign the petition telling the Senate you see through H.R. 4089's sneaky subtext!
A massively misguided bill is languishing in the Senate right now, and I am writing to ask that you do not pass it.
The Sportsmen's Heritage Bill (H.R. 4089) is a piece of legislation that is trying to fool people into thinking it's necessary for environmental conservation; in reality, the passage of this bill will simply allow for expanded industrialization for oil, logging, mining, and roadway projects. Consequently, we would see exponentially increased traffic into America's wilderness.
While hunting and fishing may be effective animal population control methods, the undoubtedly harmful effects that roadways and industrialization will create are simply not worth the potential payoff.
When it comes time to vote on H.R. 4089, VOTE NO!
