Senate Committee endorses Rocky Mountain Heritage Act

The U-S Senate Energy and Natural Resources committee this morning unanimously endorsed the Rocky Mountain Heritage Act.  The measure was introduced by Senator Max Baucus of Montana who is a Sr. member of the committee.  The Committee is made up of 12 Democrats and 10 Republicans who unanimously approved the measure on a voice vote.

The Heritage Act will create 67-thousand acres of new Wilderness in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex west of Choteau and Augusta.  It will also create 208-thousand acres of a conservation management area which will limit road building.

The Act will now be scheduled to be heard by the full Senate and then would have to move on to the U-S House where Montana Representative Steve Daines hasn’t taken a position on the controversial measure.
