Tester introduces Montana Headwaters Legacy Act


Montana Democratic U.S. Sen. Jon Tester has introduced a bill to permanently protect hundreds of miles of rivers and streams across southwestern Montana.

If the bill passes, federal agencies will be required to preserve water quality, free-flowing conditions, and certain “outstandingly remarkable values” on dozens of miles of the Gallatin, Madison, Yellowstone, Boulder, Smith, and Stillwater rivers and on sections of an additional 17 creeks.
