This is "wilderness creep." If SUWA can't win through fair play, they'll win through dirty tricks. It's just that plain and simple. We don't need any more public lands in Utah. There are already plenty.

The article says The Greater Canyonlands is the largest roadless area in the Nation's lower 48 states.

Senator David Hinkins R-Orangville said "designation would cut off access to a lot of people, especially the elderly and disabled veterans".

"This is supposed to be a great tourist designation and thats one of the reasons they say we're keeping this so that the people can see it. OK, fine. Lets let the people see it then". Said Hinkins.

I would be surprised if anyone outside of David Hinkins and the people of Orangville would have an idea of what the Senator has tried to expressed.
