Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s bill H.R. 401 designating the geological formation at Devils Tower National Monument as Devils Tower, and protecting the name of one of Wyoming’s most beloved and well-known landmarks, passed the House Natural Resources Committee today.

“Wyoming’s Devils Tower is one of our state’s most beautiful and sacred geological features. The name Devils Tower is over a century old and represents one of the most well-known sites in the nation. In addition to its historic importance in our state, Devils Tower attracts crucial tourism and revenue to our communities. I’m proud that my bill protecting this historic name passed out of the House Natural Resources Committee today and I look forward to continuing to work with Senators Enzi and Barrasso to protect this special monument.”
