Help end conflicts between wild horses and public land ranchers
The Voluntary Grazing Retirement Act — H.R. 5737 — would benefit wild horses and burros by providing another way to settle land and resource conflicts.
H.R. 5737 would also allow third parties, like wild horse or environmental organizations, to compensate livestock grazing permittees who choose to voluntarily relinquish their permits on land overseen by the Bureau of Land Management or U.S. Forest Service, permanently ending grazing on that allotment.
The legislation would incentivize the transfer of sensitive habitat while keeping land in the public domain for environmental, wildlife, recreation and other purposes, like the grazing of wild horses and burros on lands designated for their use.
