On March 12, the John D. Dingell, Jr. Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act was signed into law following a stunningly bipartisan Senate vote of 92 to 8 and House vote of 363 to 62. The bipartisan legislation contains more than 120 public lands, natural resources, conservation, and water management bills. In Montana, that includes permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund and passage of the Yellowstone Gateway Protection Act.

Across the country, the bill includes over 620 miles of new Wild & Scenic Rivers in seven states. This legislation proves the time is now for new Wild and Scenic bills. 

While we celebrate this national conservation achievement, let’s set our goals on what is next for Montana’s river legacy. Ask Montana's U.S. delegation to introduce the Montana Headwaters Security Act – draft legislation to protect Montana’s iconic streams on public lands as Wild & Scenic!
