KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - With Congress back in session this week, a renewed push is on for passage of a new Tennessee Wilderness Act.
Today marks the 29th anniversary of the original. The first Tennessee Wilderness Act was signed into law Oct. 30, 1984, by President Reagan. Leading the effort locally at the time was Will Skelton of Knoxville.
