In Montana, transfer legislation threatens 41 river runs, 192 climbing areas, and over 420 miles of mountain biking trails. The map below shows some of the most important recreational resources that could be disposed of, transferred, or sold.
A flurry of related bills were introduced in Montana, including one resolution against the transfer of public lands. Nevertheless, an interim study was completed and another task force to make the case for the land grab is proposed.
House Joint Resolution 19: "Resolution against efforts to claim, take over, litigate, or sell federal lands"
House Bill 496: "Establish public lands task force"
Senate Bill 298: "Enforce provisions of the enabling act regarding sale of public lands"
House Bill 541: "Revise laws related to property right sales"
