Does anyone know if there is a list of areas that will be affected locally if this bill passes?  I'm curious to see what people around here think.  All I can really find are the opinions of people in California (the sponsoring Representative, Kevin McCarthy, is from that state).

LTE in the Herald that led me to this bill: http://www.grandforksherald.com/event/article/id/208562/group/Opinion/


The other bill (S. 1087, Barrasso) looks like the same thing, through the Senate: https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/112/s1087

I am not sure if it affects the Dakotas or not, but I have read that it includes millions of acres.  That being said, my understanding of the bill is that it would release certain land controlled by the BLM that has not be designated as wilderness.

My guess it is for development purposes, but I am not sure.  Does anyone have more information?
