Senate to Vote on Omnibus Lands Package with Save America's Treasures, Preserve America and Conservation System Authorization Bills

The “Omnibus Public Lands Management Act of 2009” (S. 22) was introduced in the Senate this week which includes the authorization bills for the Save America’s Treasures (SAT) and Preserve America (S. 2262) programs, as well as the codification of the Bureau of Land Management’s National Landscape Conservation System (S. 1139). The new lands package will contain an additional 40 bills and will be expedited for consideration under Senate Rule 14, which waives most procedural hurdles to consideration and requires two procedure cloture votes and then a vote on final passage. The Senate will have a rare Sunday session on January 11th to hold a cloture vote on the motion to proceed to the bill. With 98 sworn-in senators, 59 votes will be required to proceed. If the bill passes on Sunday the next steps would be to hold a second cloture vote Jan. 14th to end debate and then a vote on final passage on January 16th.

However, Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) has signaled he will oppose the lands package and has publicly cited both the SAT and Preserve America programs as “a favorite piggy bank for congressional earmarks.” It was unclear at press time how many Senators may actually be in Washington for the vote on Sunday and the Senate leadership was making the rounds to ensure a quorum.

Should the omnibus lands package pass the Senate next week, the House has indicated it is ready to take up the bill shortly thereafter. Stay tuned for breaking developments.
