Unilaterally locking up lands behind wilderness or national monument designations will not protect our communities from catastrophic wildfires, strengthen comprehensive ecosystems for endangered or threatened species, nor will it ensure clean air or water for generations to come. The Congressional Western Caucus recognizes the need for real, commonsense solutions to ensure we protect our resources while actively managing our lands. Rural communities throughout the West and beyond remain strongly committed to conservation, and the Congressional Western Caucus is working to strengthen their locally-led efforts. We believe land use decisions should be made locally, not by federal bureaucrats in Washington D.C.
