Senator John Walsh today released the following statement to celebrate the launch of "Common Ground," a documentary about the Rocky Mountain Front, and his legislation, the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act.
"People across America need to watch "Common Ground' to understand the importance of protecting the Rocky Mountain Front for our children and grandchildren. Montana is a special place in part due to breathtaking areas like the Rocky Mountain Front, and I am proud to sponsor the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act to ensure its protection."
The Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act was built by local residents of north central Montana through a collaborative process. Walsh is also sponsoring other made in Montana legislation such as the North Fork Protection Act, Forest Jobs and Recreation Act, and supports fully funding the Land and Water Conservation Fund.
