Gianforte pushing to preserve stretch of East Rosebud Creek

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Montana Congressman Greg Gianforte introduced Thursday a bill to conserve a 20-mile portion of the East Rosebud Creek under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. 

The measure, if approved, would protect the popular recreation destination from development. 

Gianforte said he's hiked the area in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness extensively and met with the Friends of East Rosebud in late July. In a statement, his office also noted the U.S. Geological Survey has indicated little potential for oil and gas development in the area, and three dam projects never came through.

The bill is called the East Rosebud Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, or House Resolution 4645.
