Recording of BHA Press Event on HR 622

On Jan. 24, Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah introduced the Local Enforcement for Local Lands Act (H.R. 622) in the U.S. House of Representatives. H.R. 622 would eliminate federal law enforcement officers on America’s national forests and Bureau of Land Management lands, leaving hundreds of millions of acres vulnerable to abuse and lawless behavior, taxing state and local authorities and fundamentally compromising American’s safety, both in and around public lands. The following is a recording of a press conference recorded Wednesday, Feb. 8, on why citizens are uniting behind this threat to our public lands.
