Senate Prepared to Give Snake River "Wild and Scenic" Protections

According to Cory Hatch in the Jackson Hole Daily, the U.S. Senate could vote as early as Sunday to designate 387 miles of rivers and streams in the Snake River drainage as deserving of special protections under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. “The omnibus bill, which includes about 150 public-lands bills, is a bipartisan effort and stands a good chance of making it through the Senate, according to Tom Reed, a spokesman for Trout Unlimited and Sportsmen for the Wyoming Range. If it passes in the Senate, the bill would then go to the House of Representatives, where it also has bipartisan support. “
