Push to protect 1.4 million acres advances in Congress

Push to protect 1.4 million acres of wilderness in Colorado and the West advances in Congress: Denver Post

Rep. Diana DeGette (D -Denver) introduced the bill in May that "would include land around Handies Peak near Silverton, the Dolores River Canyon in southwestern Colorado and the Little Bookcliffs northeast of Grand Junction."

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

Thanks for the reminder on this Andy. I couldn't access the Post article without subscribing, but found good info on Diana DeGette's bill on other websites. Hard to imagine this bill being approved by the current Senate, but it has made it through the House for the first time.

The Browns Canyon WSA would also be finally designated, but as said above it's extremely unlikely to pass the Senate. I have sent emails to both Gardener and Bennet, but I'm not going to hold my breath that it will even get out of committee.
