CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Senate has passed a resolution expressing support for wild horses and burros.

Senate Joint Resolution 1 recognizes wild horses as living symbols of American Western heritage, as well as natural resources and cultural assets.

SJR1 also expresses support for wild horse and burro eco-sanctuaries, something supporters say could encourage rural tourism in the state.

Only Sens. Debbie Smith of Sparks and Ben Kieckhefer (KEE'-keh-fer) of Reno voted against the resolution.

It now goes to the Assembly.
