Protect Public Lands and Montana’s Economy

Washington’s proposed budget for 2018 cuts approximately $880 million from the U.S Forest Service. This loss of funding poses a threat to our public lands. It could mean closing off trails, shuttering visitor centers, and insufficient staffing.

But the problem runs deeper. Drastic cuts make it difficult for us keep public lands accessible to campers, sportsmen, and visitors. And when the land becomes less accessible, tourism revenue plummets.

In Montana, our economy depends on public lands. The outdoor industry supports 64,000 jobs and adds $6 billion per year to Montana’s economy. These cuts could cost Montanans their livelihood.
