Call Your Representative: H.R. 3905 Threatens BWCAW

Representative Tom Emmer has introduced a bill in Congress that reinstates the Twin Metals mineral leases on the edge of the BWCAW. The bill would also require Congressional approval to establish national monuments and to withdraw Superior National Forest land from mining. Our members of Congress need to hear that this bill is unacceptable, revokes basic environmental protections in Minnesota, and puts a national treasure at risk. Call your representative today and ask them to oppose H.R. 3905:
