Washington, DC – The U.S. Senate worked through the weekend, and one result was a vote to advance an omnibus lands bill. It's wrapped more than a hundred different bills into one, measures that affect federal land everywhere from Virginia to California. One of the measures it contains is the latest version of the Washington County Lands Bill --something Utah Senator Bob Bennett has been working on for years. Sara Sciammacco has the story from Capitol Hill.
