As Steve Daines tries to disingenuously depict himself as a public lands advocate, will he condemn his party’s move to erode public lands protections?
Despite Daines’ election-year attempt to recast himself as a public lands advocate, his record shows him supporting Trump’s anti-conservation agenda “at seemingly every turn.” Daines voted for an amendment that sportsmen and conservationists criticized as a “first step to federal land transfer,” voted against permanent reauthorization of LWCF, and spearheaded an effort to strip protections from hundreds of thousands of acres of public lands, which critics said would have constituted the “single biggest rollback of protected public lands in Montana history.”
Actions speak louder than words. Time and again, Steve Daines has stood with his Washington party leaders on public lands – not Montanans.
