ALERT: All sportsmen & sportswomen, hikers, bikers, campers, bird watchers, paddlers and anyone who cares about our great outdoors, I urge you to act now to OPPOSE Senate Joint Resolution 7 (SJR7) – “transferring title to certain public lands to the State.”
KEEP PUBLIC LANDS PUBLIC
The politicians of Nevada, along with some in Washington D.C., are trying to steal your public lands. In the 2015 Legislature, Senate Joint Resolution 1, (SJR1) Urging Congress to enact legislation transferring title to certain public lands to the State of Nevada was passed. Again, this year the Legislators will be voting on Senate Joint Resolution 7 (SJR7) Urging Congress to enact legislation transferring title to certain public lands to the State of Nevada.
Of the 897 opinions cast by Nevada voters in the 2015 Legislative section, only 87 were in favor of SJR1 (transfer public lands to state control). That is only 10.3% of the citizens of Nevada who supported this devastating resolution. We have the potential to lose a basic American value forever: the unique and abundant freedom to experience our undeveloped and wild spaces; natural wonders; wildlife and waters; an asset that has made life and citizenship in our country the envy of the world. Our public lands were created as a uniquely American solution to natural-resource challenges that have plagued nations for centuries.
While no Westerners would say that federal management of our public lands is perfect, the idea that individual states will do a better job is fundamentally flawed. If our public lands are given to the states, the American hunting and fishing tradition would be eliminated.” Greed never sleeps and is often disguised as good intention. America is known for its wide-open spaces, endless mountain ranges, famous rivers, and abundant fish and wildlife.
The power hungry of a few who willingly deprive us and/or our children of our freedom – or our tradition of hunting and fishing and enjoying the great outdoors – is intolerable. America’s national public lands rank as one of the greatest public legacies of all time. Please contact Governor Brian Sandoval at (775) 684-5670, your Legislator or the sponsors and co-sponsors of this proposal listed below and urge them OPPOSE Senate Joint Resolution 7 (SJR7).
