Rewrite Rosendale’s Record Is Clear – He’s No Friend to Public Lands

Rosendale: “I have long been on the record as an advocate for the transfer of federal public lands to the state”
 

Helena, MT – After the overwhelming passage of the Great American Outdoors act, Maryland Matt Rosendale is attempting to rewrite his record on public lands. Given the length of his record, it’s a heavy lift.

Maryland Matt has a long history of opposing protections for our public lands. In 2014, Maryland Matt admitted to being  “an advocate for the transfer of public lands” and proposed that the federal government transfer U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management lands in Montana to the state to manage and control. When he served in the state legislature, he introduced legislation encouraging federal public lands transfer to the state.

That bill is only one example of Rosendale’s many out-of-touch anti-public lands policies:

“While I’m sure we’re all moved by Maryland Matt’s political courage in lending his support to a bill after it passed the Senate with over 70 votes, what Montanans will find most affecting is Rosendale’s lofty attempt to gloss over a long career of attacking access to public lands,” said MDP Communications Director Nathan Stein. “Rosendale has made it clear several times over — he’s a clear threat to Montana’s public lands and our way of life.”
