Thursday 12 March was a sad day for Americans who enjoy traveling the great outdoors and for international observers of the US law making process.
One of the biggest land use Bills, the once named Omnibus Bill, now tacked onto H.R. 146, has been engineered in Congress to allow minimal discussion despite its complexity and huge implications to 4x4 recreation, energy resources etc..
It is vital that you call or email your Senators and representatives immediately, to demand that they vote NO to the passage of H.R. 146 in its present form.
The House votes on Monday afternoon.

The irony is that H.R. 146 is the Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Battlefield Protection Act Bill, to recognize those sites in US history where citizens died for their beliefs.
