Thread: Omnibus Bill defeated!

    Default Omnibus Bill defeated!


    Giant Omnibus Bill Goes Down by 1 Vote!!

    Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

    Greg Mumm, BRC's Executive Director, just called me from Washington D.C. He told me that the infamous Omnibus Public Lands bill, commonly known as "S. 22," failed by 1 vote in the House.

    The Omnibus Public Lands Management Act of 2009 had been fast-tracked through the U.S. Senate and had been expected to pass the House earlier today. Tell me one vote doesn't count! The bill is over 1,200 pages long with over 160 different bills, designates 2.2 million acres of Wilderness, identifies three new national parks, 10 national heritage areas, and designates over 1,000 miles of wild and scenic rivers.

    We'll have details later. Thanks to all who made calls and emailed on this bill.

    This took everyone calling, emailing and writing to their representatives.

    Good job.

    I am sure this will be back though.
