U.S. Interior Department reverses Wild Lands policy 

In an announcement made June 1, U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wouldn't designate any Wild Lands, which would have been managed as if they had received the restrictive Wilderness land-use designation from Congress. 

Instead, Salazar said the BLM, which is a part of the Interior Department, will work in collaboration with members of Congress and others to identify public land that may be appropriate candidates for congressional protection under the Wilderness Act.
