Good Wilderness News for Ultrarunners

Per the Wilderness Society:

The Wilderness Society tonight applauded the passage of five wilderness and conservation bills in the U.S. Senate. We are hopeful that the passage is a sign of things to come in the House, as the previous Congress – the 112th – was the first since 1966 to not designate a single new acre of wilderness.

The states involved include Oregon, Michigan, and Washington.  Now, the measures will still have to obtain approval in the House:

All five have been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives, and The Wilderness Society is hopeful that they will also become law this year. To see a full list of wilderness bills in the 113th Congress, visit:
