It would be very nice if these hell bent for the corporate dollar or large ranching interests Congressmen would just go away and quit trying to do this expansion of the Mining Act of 1872. In fact, I've often written my representative to either greatly alter the Mining Act making it far more expensive for mining companies or to outright eliminate it.

I'm afraid that we will keep having to fight this crap every 5 to ten years though because there always seems to be a few Congressmen or Senators from the rockies, Nevada, or California that want to give the public lands away to mining companies, developers, or large ranch operations. What amazes me is that the voters in those area keep sending folks like this to the House and Senate.
