(New Mexico’s) Organs Play on Capitol Hill Today

July 21st—With strong bipartisan support, the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks Wilderness Act, S. 1689, passed the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee today. The legislation will protect over 300,000 acres of public land as Wilderness and National Conservation Areas. Wilderness conservation in the Organ Mountains and other nearby natural treasures has been a top community priority for over five years. It awaits final Senate action.

Senior NM Senator Jeff Bingaman’s outstanding leadership, combined with NM Senator Tom Udall’s strong support has built a bill supported by thousands of citizens, four local elected governments, two local Chambers of Commerce, half a dozen local sportsmen organizations, community groups and conservation organizations.
