California legislators today approved plans for a Sierra Nevada Conservancy, which would create an organization aimed at protecting the mountain range’s natural resources and economic prosperity.

The proposal passed 54-14 in the state Assembly today, according to the Sierra Business Council. The bipartisan effort was sponsored by assemblymen Tim Leslie, R-Tahoe City, and John Laird, D-Santa Cruz.

Having already been approved by the state Senate, the bill now goes to the governor’s office for approval.
