Letter: Bishop bill to hamstring process of protecting lands misguided
First Published Mar 29 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Mar 31 2014 05:22 am

Never before have I agreed more strongly with the Tribune editorial board than I do with its March 27 editorial ("Bishop’s attack on Antiquities Act is a bad idea.")

This terribly misguided attempt to hamstring the process of protecting our public lands is one of the worst ideas my congressman has come up with in his tenure in Washington.

It only makes sense that those who would change the nature of the land should be required to "make their case" and jump through appropriate legal hoops. Bishop’s bill puts that burden on those who would maintain or protect the land. That is wrong. Your editorial is right on.
