"OIA has had great success in working closely with policymakers in both parties on a “balanced trade agenda” that balances the interests of importers with those of U.S. manufacturers. We have found a way that all parties can benefit. We believe these same principles – a balanced approach – can be applied to federal land management, and the bountiful opportunities our public land and water provide all of us. The answer is not to turn these lands over to states, disguised as better management, but is instead to continue to seek improvements in the practices and processes that lead to conflict in the first place. The outdoor industry stands ready to partner with and lead those who are willing to join us in that belief."
