Excerpt from Gallatin Range Consolidation and Protection Act: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands of the Committee on Natural Resources, House of Representatives, One Hundred Third Congress, First Session on H. R. 873, Gallatin Range Consolidation and Protection Act of 1993
Mr. Vento. I thank the gentleman for his work. I thought that probably I had - I remember when I first jurisdiction we went to this area and looked at it, and the Forest Service had been working on a negotiated-type of consolidation and it had been going, and has been going at, apparently, a deliberate speed but there is some need for legislation to facilitate it. So I commend the gentleman for the agreement. Hopefully, as we look at it more closely in detail today we will act positively on it, as we did.
I think this was really something that came from both of the Representatives from Montana in the last session, not just one. So, in that sense it was bipartisan and it remains a bipartisan pro posal, apparently, put together by the gentleman from Montana, Mr. Williams.
