The article reports that Senator Robert Bennet and Representative Jim Matheson has unwind a draft bill for Washington County, Utah which is formulated to add several acres of wilderness and protect the Virgin River. It will sell about 25,000 acres of public land to give the developing city of Saint George more room to grow. The bill considers several needs for the cities' development. The state's wilderness groups stated that the implementation of the bill would leave out 70 percent of the county's wilderness-quality lands. They also oppose the land sales and corridor provisions.
