(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Utah's congressional delegation has introduced legislation that would create a Cedar Mountains wilderness area taking in part of an Air Force bombing range.
It would let military overflights continue but ban ground exercises.
The bill, introduced last night, also could be used to block rail shipments of nuclear waste at Skull Valley Goshute Reservation, which is seeking federal approval for a dump site for spent nuclear fuel rods.
Wilderness groups said the bill is a work in progress, but they might be able to support it.
