The Public Rangelands Management Act (S.1459) will give new rights to the livestock industry that could make grazing the dominant use of our public lands. Overgrazing will lead to widespread destruction of forests and grasslands, wildlife and their habitats. In addition, the bill will rob taxpayers of millions of dollars every year in subsidies to already wealthy ranchers.
