In this article, the author discusses the debates over the Utah wilderness bill in the state's Congress. He speculates that there is now a progress in the debate as Senator Bob Bennet tried to find consensus on the issue while some environmentalists and locals see coal mining or oil and gas drilling as the basis of an economy. Also investigated is the possibility that the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance have gone to a major breakthrough.
