Background:

Pioneers viewed the West as the land of opportunity. They saw a chance for greater independence, self-sufficiency, and a better way of life for their families. Today, however, some of these same families, industries, and communities are struggling to stay afloat thanks to some overbearing federal agents who think they are above the law. The hearing will feature testimony from Americans across the country who will provide personal experiences of ongoing and abusive conduct by federal land management agencies taken against private property rights.
