Update on the Western Wyoming Multiple Use Coalition
Group recently formed to oppose HR980-Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act (NREPA)
by Kent Price
May 7, 2009

The WWMC met last on Tuesday, May 5th, and drafted a mission statement and a core values list for the coalition. Officers were elected and future actions based on the outcome of the HR 980 committee’s meeting were discussed along with other long term goals. The board will be meeting again next week. The board currently consists of Cotton Bousman from Boulder, Kurt Cordingly from Pinedale, Marc Porter from Big Piney, Kent Price from Daniel, David Royal from Boulder, Sutton Truluck from Big Piney, and Bob Wharff from Evanston. There may be an addition of one or two other members within the next couple of weeks.

Editor’s Note: This group formed during a community meeting in Pinedale on April 30, 2009 to oppose H.R. 980-Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act (NREPA), proposed legislation which would add 24-million additional acres of public land in five states in the northern Rockies under federal wilderness protection. The proposed bill would increase wilderness acreage in Sublette County significantly on the Bridger-Teton National Forest and Bureau of Land Management lands.
