Letter: Let the BLM know your views on Thompson Divide

Procrastination is a luxury we can't afford right now. If people care about the fate of Thompson Divide (and most of the community has overwhelmingly proved they support keeping the Thompson Divide as is), then now is the time to make the BLM aware of our views.

April 1 is the deadline for BLM to reach a decision regarding the extension of oil and gas leases in Thompson Divide. Please let the BLM know your views now.

BLM shouldn't kick the can down the road for another two years. Provide security to the some 300 individuals, including our local ranchers, outfitters and small business owners, who rely on the land to maintain a livelihood and let the leases expire, BLM.
