Potential Loss of Public Lands - 2016

It is essential to the membership of the ACA that public lands stay public. We are deeply concerned by the growing interest in transferring public lands to states, where they are more likely to be inappropriately developed or sold off, ending recreational access.  Once gone, they are gone forever.

We understand that the House Natural Resources Committee will soon vote to remove an extremely concerning provision from the “Puerto Rico Oversight, Management and Economic Stability Act" that would transfer a portion of the Vieques National Wildlife Refuge to the government of Puerto Rico.
