      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 didn’t have much in terms of kind words for this bill.
