The federal government manages 640 million acres of land, over 90% of which is west of the Mississippi River. The Congressional Western Caucus supports policies to promote multiple-use, such as livestock grazing, mineral leasing, and timber harvesting, which benefits local, rural communities and strengthens economic development throughout rural America. Multiple-use is not contrary to conservation. Our constituents live, work, and recreate on our public lands, and a balanced, responsible approach to the management of our public lands vital to our constituents’ lives and livelihoods who rely upon a healthy, actively-managed landscape.
