The Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act continues to gain state-level endorsements . . .
Montana fish and wildlife commissioners are endorsing federal legislation to expand protections along the Rocky Mountain Front.
The Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission passed a resolution Thursday supporting the Rocky Mountain Heritage Act.
The bill would add more than 67,000 acres of new wilderness to the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex and grants less-restrictive protections to another 208,000 acres. It also calls for a plan to eradicate noxious weeds in the area.
