Re: AFFTA Joins TU in Opposing Bill that would Trash America's Backcountry
The concern is for Wilderness and Roadless areas, not just Wilderness areas. We have way too little Wilderness areas and many are surrounded by roadless areas. I don't believe there should be a road right up to the edge of any wilderness area. Many roadless areas act as buffer zones for Wilderness areas and they need protection just as much as Wilderness areas. I am against any attempt to create more roads in our remote areas even if it is not a Wilderness area. Anytime a road is built in a remote area the fishing, hunting and land suffer.
