Public lands bill advances in Colorado Legislature

Issue of local jurisdiction brings accusations from all sides
A fire burning in the summer of 2013 near the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad tracks on the west side of U.S. Highway 550, just south of East Animas Road (County Road 250), consumed up to 2 acres in 2013. A public lands bill making its way through the Legislature could speed wildfire response by increasing the jurisdiction of local authorities, a supporter said Monday.
