The House just passed the 2012 Sportsmen's Heritage Act.
This from Outdoor Life, a hunting and fishing website that is opposed to the bill:
According to the Congressional Research Service, the bill would open Wilderness Areas to motorized use, oil and gas development, logging and a host of other activities that would cut the heart out of protective designations like Wilderness Areas. In fact, the CRS didnâ€™t have much in terms of kind words for this bill.
