Stop the Biggest Corporate Land Grab in U.S. History

The House of Representatives has passed "mining" language that, if it becomes law, would put hundreds of millions of acres of public lands up for sale. One possible result: the mass exclusion of the public from lands the public now owns -- lands that hosted over 200 million visitors in 2004 for hiking, fishing, hunting, backpacking, birdwatching....

With your help, the Senate can stop this. The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (HR4241, aka the budget reconciliation bill) passed the House, but the Senate version does NOT contain the mining language. The differences between the House and Senate versions now have to be reconciled in a conference committee.

Please tell your Senator to tell the Senate conferees on the Budget bill to strip the mining subtitle, and oppose the budget reconciliation bill if it contains the mining language by CLICKING HERE!

Thanks for the tip. I'm part of a group of people working to oust Pombo from Congress. I would have never found Westerners for Responsible Mining if you hadn't mentioned them.

If you're interested in getting rid of Pombo, check out my blog, Say No to Pombo.
