One year later: Montanans still oppose Rehberg's anti-hunting bill
One year ago today, multimillionaire Congressman Dennis Rehberg threw his support behind the anti-hunting Roadless Area Release act, which would jeopardize thousands of acres of world-class wildlife habitat. Like so many other bills Congressman Rehberg has supported, this one has seen no listening sessions, but lots of opposition--including the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
Montana Democratic Party Executive Director Ted Dick says Congressman Rehberg's long political career has been defined by ignoring Montana values:
"After 35 years in politics, Congressman Rehberg still won't listen to Montanans, but he will try to undermine the traditions Montanans cherish. From his support for the Patriot Act to his Homeland Security land grab to this latest anti-hunting attack, Congressman Rehberg has left no doubt that he's out of touch with basic Montana values."
This is the second anti-hunting bill from Congressman Rehberg to turn 1 year old in the last two weeks -- his highly controversial Homeland Security land grab is also still before Congress and news reports indicate that it may soon come up for a vote.
