The Alpine Lakes Wilderness Additions and Pratt and Middle Fork Snoqualmie Rivers Protection Act has been reintroduced in Congress by Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) , Rep. Dave Reichert (R-WA) and Rep. Suzan Del Bene (D-WA). The legislation, identical to the Senate bill that passed the Energy and Natural Resources Committee last session, would protect an additional 22,000 acres of wilderness adjoining the existing Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area, and would add 10 miles of the Pratt River and nearly 30 miles of the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River to the National Wild and Scenic River System.
