Cheney's bill would amend the Wyoming Wilderness Act and supersede a 2006 federal court opinion that limits the number of skiers commercial helicopters can ferry into the Palisades Wilderness Study Area.

A panel of Teton County residents has been considering what to do with Palisades and other federal lands.
