“Northern California Coastal Wild Heritage Wilderness Act” Bill (H.R. 233/S. 128)

RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF THE “NORTHERN CALIFORNIA COASTAL WILD HERITAGE WILDERNESS ACT"BILL (H.R. 233/ S. 128)

Adopted March 7, 2005

Whereas,      the designation of wilderness permanently preserves our Nation’s remaining

untrammeled federal land; and

Whereas,      the “Wild and Scenic River” designation strictly protects our Nation’s

outstanding free flowing rivers; and

Whereas,      Humboldt State University students and faculty utilize the Act’s proposed

wilderness areas for recreational opportunities; and

Whereas,      HSU students and faculty of numerous departments engage in study and

conduct research in these proposed wilderness areas; and

Whereas,      with the continued urban expansion and population growth on the North

Coast, it is increasingly important to preserve our remaining wild areas; and

Whereas,      as student representatives, it is our responsibility to ensure future students

are able to have the experiences in this area that we have been able to; and

Whereas,      HSU prides itself on its commitment to natural resource conservation

efforts; therefore be it

Resolved,      that the Associated Students formally support the “Northern California

Coastal Wild Heritage Wilderness Act”; and be it further

Resolved,      that the Associated Students urge the U.S. Congress to act on this Bill

without delay; and be it further

Resolved,      That copies of this Resolution be sent to, but not limited to: U.S.

Representative and House Resources Committee Chair Richard Pombo,

U.S. Representative Mike Thompson, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger,
