Laramie, WY – Wyoming's senior Senator Craig Thomas says the bill he helped introduce to protect rivers is making headway in Congresss. The bill would include hundreds of miles of Wyoming rivers and streams in the national wild and scenic river system. He says his intention is to preserve those miles of rivers and streams while enhancing the local economy. Thomas says the bill has been read in committee and he thinks it will move forward soon.
