Daines joins chorus of critics blasting Rehberg’s federal land-grab bill


Republican House candidate says H.R. 1505 allows ‘more power than needed’

BILLINGS, Mont. – Steve Daines, a Republican candidate for Montana’s lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, has joined a chorus of critics in blasting H.R. 1505, Congressman Dennis Rehberg’s federal land-grab bill.

During a live interview on Tuesday’s Voices of Montana radio show, Daines said Rehberg’s unpopular bill will allow the federal government “more power than needed.”



H.R. 1505, the misnamed “National Security and Federal Lands Protection Act,” undermines at least 36 existing laws in order to give the U.S. Department of Homeland Security unprecedented control over public lands within 100 miles of Montana’s vast northern border with Canada.

“When I start seeing those things, I realize we’ve got people back in Washington that don’t understand the importance here of states’ rights,” Daines said of Rehberg’s bill. “We don’t need to just have a bunch of federal bureaucrats and federal authorities here usurping the rights and the authorities here we have here in the state of Montana.”

In November of 2010, Daines announced plans to challenge Jon Tester in Montana’s U.S. Senate race. He later switched to run for the U.S. House after Rehberg announced plans to run for the Senate.

Rehberg continues to defend his H.R. 1505 despite overwhelming opposition from Montanans across the political spectrum—from hunting and fishing organizations to advocates of smaller government. Conservative Montana blogger Dr. Ed Berry calls the legislation a “fatal betrayal of America.” The U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security said last week that Rehberg’s bill is “unnecessary” and “bad policy.”

“The government’s role here is to protect the rights of the individual, and our individual rights, our individual liberties,” Daines said Tuesday. “We’ve got to look through that filter—that prism—whenever we look at legislation that’s coming out of Washington that is looking to expand authority here of the federal government. We’ve got to come back to the rights of the individual. And that’s why I have concerns.”

Here is a verbatim transcript of Steve Daines’ remarks:

“I share concerns as we see—as we deal with the threats abroad, here. But also ensuring that we do not compromise the rights of the American people. And, you know, there’s been a couple of pieces of legislation out there—one related to border security and so forth, here, where it’s going to allow the federal government to have what I believe to be more power than needed here, you know, extending 100 miles south of [Montana’s northern] border here, which puts a pretty big dent here in Montana. And when I start seeing those things, I realize we’ve got people back in Washington that don’t understand the importance here of states’ rights, and the importance here of ensuring that—I want to see Montanans taking care of the state. We don’t need to just have a bunch of federal bureaucrats and federal authorities here usurping the rights and the authorities here we have here in the state of Montana. So I think as we look at the legislation that’s going to come out, there’s a path of wisdom to walk on this… The government’s role here is to protect the rights of the individual, and our individual rights, our individual liberties. And we’ve got to look through that filter—that prism—whenever we look at legislation that’s coming out of Washington that is looking to expand authority here of the federal government. We’ve got to come back to the rights of the individual. And that’s why I have concerns over the legislative pieces you mentioned.” [Voices of Montana, 3/13/2012]


Rehberg finally authors some legislation- and he has the whole state up in arms against him--even conservative Republicans not wanting to give the Federal government, and especially Homeland Security more power...And especially bring in more bureaucracy and costs- where there has not been shown a need for it.....

But he claims he's a Tea Partyier....... :roll: :???:

But he claims he's a Tea Partyier....

What started as a grassroots movement has been hijacked by alot of politicians..

it's like anything else that requires a principled stand.. claiming it is not enough..

he could claim to be superman... but that doesn't make him one...

neither does a conspiracy make a good theory..

4/13/2011–Introduced.
Prohibits the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of Agriculture (USDA) from taking action on public lands which impede the border security activities of the Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) (Secretary). States that the Secretary shall have immediate access to any public land managed by the federal government in order to conduct activities that assist in securing the border (including access to maintain and construct roads, construct a fence, use patrol vehicles, and set up monitoring equipment). States that a specified waiver by the Secretary of certain laws regarding sections of the international border between the United States and Mexico and between the United States and Canada shall apply to all sections of the international land and maritime borders of the United States within 100 miles of such borders with respect to the Secretary’s activities under this Act.

While I do not want homeland security to have more power under a rogue administration.. so I can understand your concern of the Obama administration getting what you would consider more power...

but the fact is.. border patrol has been stopped from enforcing border security in sensitive areas by other departments.. leaving illegal free passage zones and this bill is to rectify that problem..


the only reason a person would be concerned is if they didn't trust the current administration to follow the intent of the law... ..
