Senate easily passes conservation, public lands bill

The bill to protect millions of acres of public lands is one step closer to becoming law. The Senate approved a sweeping conservation bill that will create four new national monuments. The bill has wide support in the House and White House aides said President Trump is likely to sign it when it reaches his desk. The Senate vote today was 92-to-8, a rare overwhelming bipartisan vote in the age of division. If it becomes law it will protect hundreds of miles of wild rivers and save taxpayers $9,000,000 according to the Congressional Budget Office. The bill would designate 1,300,000 acres as wilderness, which would prohibit roads and motorized vehicles. More than 370,000 acres that are new national parks would no longer be available for mining. The House is expected to take up the bill after its February break./AOL photo
