Congress moves to preserve heritage corridor.
The legislation was introduced by U.S. Rep. Joseph D. Courtney, D-Conn. The bill now goes to President Barack Obama and he is expected to sign it. The Last Green Valley is home to a variety of wildlife and plant life in seven forests and 80 lakes and ponds.
In January, U.S. Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, D-Conn. and Mr. Courtney introduced legislation to extend the authorization of the Quinebaug and Shetucket Rivers Valley National Heritage Corridor Act of 1994. There are 35 towns in the corridor in Northeast Connecticut and southern Central Massachusetts.
