The Trump Administration Ushered in Most Anti-Environmental, Anti-Public Lands Record in History
HELENA, MT – In response to President Trump’s scheduled Great American Outdoors Act signing ceremony today, Western Values Project Director Jayson O’Neill issued the following statement:
“President Trump and his enablers in the Senate can’t wash away the dirty reality of a public lands record that is unequivocally the worst in history. This is a win for the people that spoke up, reached out, and whose overwhelming outcry to save our parks and fund our public lands forced politically vulnerable officials into action. At the end of the day, people can tell the difference between public land champions and DC double-talkers.
“The sad irony is that much of this critical funding could end up in the hands of an anti-public lands, anti-public access Bureau of Land Management director and an unconfirmed National Park Service director.”
