It is important to remember that not all public laws in the library designate or directly affect a wilderness or wildernesses. Some laws, including the Federal Lands Policy and Management Act, Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act and the Americans With Disabilities Act (just to name a few) do not designate wilderness, yet they are laws that influence wilderness management.
