Washington State Farm Bureau newsletter


MAYORS OF 65 WESTERN WASHINGTON COMMUNITIES HAVE SIGNED A LETTER of support for the proposed Wild Sky Wilderness area, including 13 of the 20 cities in Snohomish County. (Everett Herald, April 1, 2004) The Washington Wilderness Coalition helped coordinate the letter, which was sent to the state's congressional delegation. The proposal would place almost 106,000 acres within the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest off limits to resource development. The Senate approved the measure last year, but it has not received a hearing in the House. Washington Farm Bureau opposes the designation.
