New Hampshire Wilderness Act Of 2006

Location: Washington, DC

NEW HAMPSHIRE WILDERNESS ACT OF 2006 -- (House of Representatives - September 25, 2006)


Mr. BRADLEY of New Hampshire. Mr. Speaker, once again I thank my colleagues from Guam and New Mexico for their support of this legislation. Like Congressman Bass's bill previously, my bill expands by nearly 11,000 acres the Sandwich Range Wilderness Area in the central part of the White Mountain National Forest.

The Forest Service in the State of New Hampshire, working once again with environmental groups, with businesses involved in the forest products industry, developed a comprehensive plan for the management of the White Mountain National Forest. Both of these wilderness proposals have seen fit to have garnered the support of everyone in New Hampshire that I am aware of.

The Forest Service plan had absolutely no appeals and is in the process of being implemented. The legislation that myself and Congressman Bass have separately proposed would implement the two wilderness proposals and, as I have repeatedly stated, has received no objections.

It is certainly my hope, and I appreciate the support of my colleague on the other side of the aisle, as well as my colleague from New Mexico, for this legislation, should go forward this afternoon. It will protect the New Hampshire environment. It will also serve the forest products industry in my State. And I would urge my colleagues in the strongest possible way to vote for both of these bills later on today, despite the call for a vote potentially by my colleague on the other side of the aisle
