Tester’s New Wilderness Bill Draws Critics, Supporters

A week after Sen. Jon Tester released his Blackfoot Clearwater Stewardship Act, some wilderness advocates question what it might really do. No designated as S. 507, the bill resurrects a portion of Tester’s 8 year old Forest Jobs and Recreation Act affecting the southwest corner of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex. That bill ran into opposition from some environmentalists and U.S. Forest Service officials who objected to the way it mandated commercial work in the forests. The new bill has raised eyebrows for the compromises it’s made with mountain biking groups.
