What do the newspapers think about the Backcountry Legislation?

Here is a link to an article that was in the December 11th 2003 Missoulian newspaper concerning the backcountry airstrips in Montana and the west. It is a fairly balanced article and the author quotes MPA members Chuck Jarecki and John McKenna too. The thrust of the article is Denny Rehberg's involvement with HR 2776 and what it would do for protecting backcountry airstrips. The online version does not include a picture we furnished of an airplane camper at Schafer.

Other newspapers in Montana ran similar articles on this subject in this same time period.
