RIVER NOTES
Montanans for Healthy Rivers newsletter

April 2018 Vol.5 No.2
Free -Flowing & Clean
We’re closer than ever to celebrating a gift for all Montanans. The East Rosebud Wild & Scenic Rivers Act (H.R. 4645) moved out of the House Natural Resources committee this morning and now awaits a full vote on the House floor in Washington D.C. A companion bill (S. 501) already passed the Senate on December 20, 2017.

Flowing out of the granite peaks of the mighty Beartooth Range, East Rosebud Creek could become Montana’s first Wild & Scenic River in over 40 years. With that designation comes permanent protection from federally licensed dam projects and the opportunity for the public to enjoy one of Montana’s most aesthetic, free-flowing streams, in perpetuity.

A big thanks goes to Montana’s Representative Greg Gianforte for sponsoring this bill in the House. It is now up to our lone-congressman to deliver the gift of Wild & Scenic protection to all Montanans. We don’t want this great momentum to get lost in election season later this year. 

Please Call Rep. Gianforte at (202) 225-3211 today to thank him for championing the East Rosebud Wild & Scenic Rivers Act (H.R. 4645) and to urge him to get it across the finish line before this summer.
