    The measure has been held up by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), who objects to about 100 of the bills because they would put some public lands off-limits to development or, he says, cost the government money

    Not sure why he is worried about it.. the government don't need to save any money they have 700 billion to spend on sub prime mortgages and golden parachutes....

    That was funny!

    Anyway...back to the Lock-up. Included' in the package...."Combined, the different bills in the omnibus would create more than a million acres of wilderness while authorizing dozens of studies for potential parks, protected rivers and historical landmarks. Potentially controversial measures included in the package are bills that would make the 26-million-acre National Landscape Conservation System permanent and allow construction of a road through Alaska's Izembek National Wildlife Refuge."
