House passes significant wilderness bill; would designate 1.4M acres in West; fate in Senate dimmer

The House passed legislation aimed at providing additional protections for more than 1 million acres of public land on the West Coast on Wednesday.


The package — which combines six land protection bills that passed out of the House Natural Resources Committee — would designate roughly 1.4 million acres in Colorado, California and Washington State as federally protected wilderness, granting it the highest level of protection possible.
