A Wyoming senator opposes a proposed purchase of federal land because he worries tribes might do the same.

Sen. Craig Thomas (R-Wyo.) believes a bill affecting a Wyoming site sacred to the Mormon church could set a precedent. In particular, he doesn't want tribes to buy Medicine Wheel or Devils Tower.

The Martin's Cove bill passed out of of the House Resources Committee last week.
