Bills to remove lands from list of those being studied as potential designated wilderness fail

Bills authored by Montana Republicans U.S. Sen. Steve Daines and U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte to remove Wilderness Study Area designations from wildlands in Montana are dead for this Congress, parties on all sides of the issue acknowledged.

Daines and Gianforte both said they intend to refile measures in the next Congress, although it is unclear whether they will modify their measures to increase chances of passage.
