Conservation System and Preserve America/Save America’s Treasures Authorization Bills Face Uncertainty in Senate

An omnibus lands package (S. 3213) that contains both the Senate companion Preserve America (PA)/Save America’s Treasures (SAT) authorization (S. 2262) and the Conservation System permanence (S. 1139) bills is now being superseded by a somewhat smaller package of already-approved, House passed public lands bills that have met the scrutiny of Sen. Tom Coburn (ROK), who had threatened to stop the larger package because of objections he had with several of the bills contained within that measure. Previously, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) had stated that the omnibus lands package bill would not be considered until September. However, with a Coburn approved package of bills it may be possible for the smaller measure to be considered before the August recess. The National Trust and its Conservation System Alliance partners are closely monitoring the developments surround the new package and the possible timing for floor consideration before the August recess. Fortunately, the House companion bills for both the PA/SAT (HR 3981) and the Conservation System (H.R. 2016) authorizations have already passed in that chamber so they would be eligible for inclusion in the new, but smaller lands package in the Senate.
