Senate approves Sabinoso protections

-A A +A
By David Giuliani

The U.S. Senate last week passed legislation to designate more than 17,000 acres in southeastern San Miguel County as wilderness by a vote of 73-22.

The legislation, authored by Sen. Tom Udall when he served in the House, is included in a package of public land bills assembled by Sen. Jeff Bingaman. Both are New Mexico Democrats.

The proposed new wilderness area would contain lands currently included in the Sabinoso Wilderness Study Area. The land is currently managed by the Bureau of Land Management.
