Montana Representative Greg Gianforte says he'll seek broad input on unlocking WSAs

August 4, 2018View for printing

Republican Congressman Greg Gianforte said Thursday he'll personally meet with people across Montana -- including conservationists -- who want a say in the controversial issue about unlocking federal Wilderness Study Areas for multiple uses such as motorized recreation, mining or logging.

"We'll be meeting more broadly with all the concerned parties," Gianforte told the Chronicle's editorial board. "Because we got to hear everybody."

Gianforte has been criticized by some environmental groups for not taking their input on the issue. The congressman said that's what he'll be doing throughout August.
