(12-26) 18:57 PST -- Senators Baucus, D-Mont., Tester, D-Mont., and Crapo, R-Idaho have introduced a bill that would restore free public access to national forests in California and across the West.
S2438 - the "Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act" would end fees for parking, hiking or wilderness treks, as now required in Southern California and Mount Shasta, and has been proposed for other national forests in Northern California.
