Protect Wilderness Study Areas

In September, Congressman Steve Pearce introduced H.R. 3478, the Luna and Hidalgo Counties

Wilderness Study Area (WSA) Release Act of 2015. Like his opposition to Organ Mountains Desert Peaks National Monument, Congressman Pearce once again demonstrates a complete disregard to a balanced approach to national public lands and the wishes of the majority of New Mexicans.

Releasing WSAs and sacrificing the few remaining roadless areas in the ecologically import ant bootheel region is short-sighted and out of touch with New Mexican values.

Sign The Petition It is outrageous that Congressman Peace introduced this legislation without a public process. Let Congressman Pearce know that Wilderness Study Areas should continue to be managed for their wilderness characteristics, habitat and recreation and permanently protected, not opened up for industrial development.
