Western Governors’ Association
Leaders from around the West convened a two-day meeting on Wednesday in Las Vegas to discuss land use, wildfires and environmental conservation.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said Tuesday there are initial talks with Western governors about sharing a regional aerial fleet to fight fires, although the idea is far from reality at the moment.
There’s now a proposal to get Colorado more wildfire fighting resources.
The federal Bureau of Land Management will use Colorado state and regional maps to identify wildlife corridors and habitat for land-use planning.
