The Sagebrush Rebels ride again -- and again

Larmer, Paul
December 2007
High Country News;12/10/2007, Vol. 39 Issue 23, p2
The author reflects on the efforts by a group called Sagebrush Rebels and Scott McInnis, a Republican Congressman, to influence the U.S. government's environmental policy in the Western states. He argues that McInnis's criticism on the government's program to create national monuments on public lands has disregarded the interest of people who value the wildness and beauty of public lands. He believes that while there are public lands to protect, the Sagebrush Rebels will continue to exist.
