Quick Action on 160+ Public Lands Bills

January 7, 2009
06:15 PM
Chairman Bingaman is delighted that Majority Leader Harry Reid has started a process to bring to an early vote a bipartisan package of more than 160+ individual public lands bills, S. 22. The 1,294-page package includes new protections for wilderness, historic sites, national parks, forests, rivers and trails, public lands and water resources.  The legislation contains roughly an equal mix of Democratic bills, Republican bills and bills with bipartisan sponsorship.  Reid’s strategy of introducing the legislation via Rule 14 will expedite the Senate’s ability to deal with these bills.  Look for a vote on proceeding to the bill this Sunday, if not sooner.
