Congressman Hansen of Utah has a long record of trying to prevent Wilderness
designations in his home state, preferring that much Bureau of Land
Management land in southern Utah be used variously for ATVs and motorcycles,
or coal mining, or petroleum extraction. Luckily he is retiring with the end
of the current Congress. These controversies all raise questions about the
status of federal lands in the West, which belong to the entire country. How
much "multiuse" is too much "multiuse"? Personally I would err on the side
of more Wilderness than not; your mileage may vary, of course!
