Default Red Rock Wilderness Act of 2009

Dear Mr. B_____:

Thank you for contacting me to express your opposition to the Red Rock Wilderness Act
of 2009. I appreciate hearing from you.

As you know, Representative Maurice Hinchey of New York introduced the Red Rock Wilderness Act (H.R. 1925) on April 2, 2009. This bill would designate 9.4 million acres of land in Utah as wilderness and components of the National Wilderness Preservation System.

Territories designated as components of the National Wilderness Preservation System are protected in order to preserve their natural characteristics and are subject to provisions that prevent even the most non-invasive of human activities. As a co-founder of the National Parks Caucus, I strongly believe in protecting natural spaces throughout our country. However, it is necessary to carefully study this area before including it into the National Wildlife Preservation System- some lands must remain available for development, mining, grazing, tourism, and recreation. Perhaps a compromise can be achieved whereby part of the area will be designated a national park, while some remains open to recreational uses.

H.R. 1925 has been referred to the House Committee on Natural Resources for further review. Although I am not a member of the Committee on Natural Resources, should this bill come before the House floor for a vote I will keep your thoughts in mind when considering it

Thank you for keeping in touch with me. If I may be of assistance in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me again. I also encourage you to visit my Web site, which may be found on-line

That was in response to a letter of opposition that i sent to Mark Souder
Member of Congress about the Moab thing. Feel free to discuss amongst yourselves.
