Cape Horn
MAY 19, 2005
Cape Horn -- Taken off Rep. Simpson's Chopping Block

Due to public uproar, Rep. Simpson has pulled the Cape Horn land giveaway out of his 2005 CIEDRA (Central Idaho Economic Development and Recreation Act) bill. His 2004 bill would have delivered 960 acres of wildlife habitat on the Challis National Forest to Custer County for real estate and commercial development.

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO CONTACTED REP. SIMPSON AND PROTESTED -- YOU HELPED PROTECT CAPE HORN AND KEEP THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE INTACT.

Unfortunately, CIEDRA is proposing to give away 162 acres of SNRA lands near Stanley to Custer County and the City of Stanley for development. These acres include prime wildlife and fish habitat.
