Places are worth more than the minerals underneath them

Dear Sen. Bennett,

Today I am lucky enough to be spending the day hiking in the Thompson Divide. I’m sitting next to the Lake Ridge Lakes right now admiring the amazing beauty that this area offers. I wanted to thank you for introducing the Thompson Divide Protection and Withdrawal Act. As you well know there are amazing places that are worth far more than the dollar value of the minerals underneath. Thank you for having the courage to take the first step in protecting this land.
