Sen. Heinrich looks to turn Bandelier into National Park

WASHINGTON (KRQE) - U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich wants to turn Bandelier National Monument into a National Park. 

Sen. Heinrich plans on introducing a new proposal that would make it happen. 

The designation carries more prestige, which in turn brings more tourists, jobs and revenue. 

He's also working on granting the National Parks status to White Sands.
