Re: “Letters to the Editor

Thanks to Sen Sue Malek for voting against HJ 9 and speaking out in support of Montana's Wilderness Study Areas.

It's worth remembering that Senator Tester's Forest Jobs and Recreation Act which was supported by the Montana Dem Party and groups like Montana Wilderness Association, would have fully released these Wilderness Study Areas for logging, motorized recreation and/or development:

Axolotl Lakes Wilderness Study Area
Bell and Limekiln Canyons Wilderness Study Area
Henneberry Ridge Wilderness Study Area
Hidden Pasture Wilderness Study Area

Tester's FJRA also would have released a portion of the following Wilderness Study Areas for logging, motorized recreation and/or development:

Blacktail Mountains Wilderness Study Area
Centennial Mountains Wilderness Study Area
Farlin Creek Wilderness Study Area
Humbug Spires Wilderness Study Area
Ruby Mountains Wilderness Study Area
Sapphire Wilderness Study Area
West Pioneer Wilderness Study Area

For certain, I wish these facts weren't true, but anyone who actually took time to read through Senator Tester's Forest Jobs and Recreation Act knows the truth about this.
