Title: NCBA, PLC Grateful for Release of Dwight and Steven Hammond

WASHINGTON (July 10, 2018) — Today Ethan Lane, Executive Director of the Public Lands Council and NCBA Federal Lands, released the following statement:

“We are extremely grateful to President Trump for granting a full pardon to Dwight and Steven Hammond. The Hammonds were forced to suffer from grave injustice for far too long, and the entire ranching community is relieved that they will be reunited with their families. No rancher undertaking normal agricultural practices should fear spending years in jail at the hands of the federal government. NCBA and PLC have continued to advocate for the Hammonds’ release, and we would like to thank Representative Greg Walden and the many others who worked tirelessly on their behalf.”
