All carrot and no stick?

Do you bask the landscape of the Missouri River basin throughout North Dakota? Is heritage, the history of our state and preserving that history for future generations to witness and experience important to you?

If you answered yes to the previous questions, then you are in luck. On March 30, President Barack Obama signed into law the Omnibus Public Lands Management Act of 2009.

This act included more than 160 bills covering a broad spectrum of public lands, historic sites and battlefields. According to GovTrack.us, a database of federal legislation, the bill received support in both the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate, and this legislation established a new system of public lands, which will protect an estimated 26 million acres of American heritage.
