I'm happy to share this report, which details the passage of a Senate bill that would set aside millions of acres as federally protected wilderness in some stunningly beautiful places that deserve perpetual protection from development. Having been a frequent visitor to Rocky Mountain National Park, and lucky enough to have also visited the Sierra Nevadas and Mt. Hood, I can personally say I am thrilled that this measure might pass, and these habitats/wonders of nature may be preserved, at least for a little while. Let's hope the House gets it together and passes this!
