The right way involves the Blackfoot Clearwater Stewardship Act, which would add 80,000 acres to the Bob Marshall, Scapegoat, and Mission Mountains Wilderness Areas
The Deception Daines is Using to Sell His WSA Bill

Gianforte Follows Daines’ Lead and Shuts Montanans Out
Together they are waging the single biggest assault on public lands in Montana history

Call to Action in the Bitterroot
