Good evening,
The Upper White Salmon River Wild and Scenic Rivers Act was passed by the Senate Sunday! This bill will set aside 20 miles to the existing 8 already listed. The bill now goes to the House. :)

Other bills that passed the Senate;

The Upper Connecticut River Partnership Act. A Grant and Tech. Assistance program for the Connecticut River watershed to help carry out conservation and restoration projects. :)

Arizona Water Settlement Act opens the way for major development along the Gila River, Possibly endangering it's fragile eco-systems :mad:

Some good, some not so good. These bills need House approval as well before becoming law.
