Fantastic news and with LWCF funding. Cantwell and Murkowski deserve high praise.

Awesome!

"Its a paradoxical win for conservation at a time when President Trump has promoted development on public lands and scaled back safeguards established by his predecessors.".

Got a nice e-mail back from one of our Senators, both of whom are environmental stalwarts. I don't know her personally but sat next to her at the Beckey memorial. I thanked Senators Cantwell and Murkowski earlier today by e-mail.

Quote:
Gary,

The Senate has just passed my legislation to secure a permanent re-authorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund--The most important conservation program in the United States.

This is a legislative win for all of Washington, the thriving outdoor economy, and the entirety of the United States. Take a moment to check out this piece on the legislation in the Seattle Times, which sums up why this is such a critical victory for our state.

I am so honored to be able to work another term fighting for our state in the Senate, and am thankful for your past, and current support.

-Maria

The link Senator Cantwell provided to the Seattle Times article, the LWCF is a very big deal and shows the Senate can still work together for common purpose.
