Senate passes resolution supporting wild horses

Posted: Updated:

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- The Nevada Senate has passed a resolution expressing support for wild horses and burros.

Senate Joint Resolution 1 recognizes wild horses as living symbols of American Western heritage, as well as natural resources and cultural assets.

SJR1 also expresses support for wild horse and burro eco-sanctuaries, something supporters say could encourage rural tourism in the state.

Only Sens. Debbie Smith of Sparks and Ben Kieckhefer of Reno voted against the resolution.

It now goes to the Assembly.
