Conservation efforts in Wyoming

According to the Jackson Hole News & Guide, action is being taken to protect the Snake River and the Wyoming Range. The Craig Thomas Snake Headwaters Legacy Act “would protect 387 miles of rivers and streams in the Snake River drainage under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act.” And the Wyoming Range Legacy Act “would prohibit further energy leasing in the Wyoming Range south of Jackson Hole and would allow conservation groups to buy and retire existing energy leases.” Both bills were passed by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee on Wednesday, and now goes to the Senate floor for a vote before going on to the Wyoming House.
