According to The Rocky Mountain News, former Congressman Scott McInnis has formally had a wilderness area named after him. Here's the scoop on McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area:
This 122,300-acre expanse of sandstone canyons, high desert wilderness and 24-mile stretch of the Colorado River west of Grand Junction has been renamed for a former Colorado congressman who sponsored the bill to create it five years ago.
If McInnis does decide to run for governor, how will this affect campaign laws? Could the other candidates claim "equal time" and require that they get their own wildlife areas named after them? Rutt Bridges Canyon? Marc Holtzman River?
