This fight is far from over

leave a comment »

Last week’s issue of Vegas Seven included a news story about the Las Vegas Valley Public Land and Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument Act. Self-serving linkage aside, people who love to hike, are concerned about environmental conservation, care about historical preservation, are archaeology buffs — pretty much everyone I know, in fact — should have this story on his or her radar. GovTrak.com gives the proposed bill only a 2-percent chance of being enacted, but states one reason as this congress’s tendency to enact so little legislation in general. Those I interviewed seem to believe the bill will live on, be modified, mulled, reintroduced and so on, until it passes in some form. There’s quite a bit at stake (check out the original bill here), and the fight is far from over,so don’t forget about the fossils!
