Right now Congress is considering legislation that would be a game changer for the sporting community. The bi-partisan bill had near unanimous consent in the House and Senate before the holiday, and now it has been reintroduced. If passed, sportsmen and women, and the diverse outdoor community, will achieve the protection of more than 1.3 million acres of iconic landscapes and key conservation programs of the like unseen in a generation.
S.47 would permanently reauthorize and provide dedicated funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Without the Land and Water Conservation Fund, the sporting community would be without dozens and dozens of fishing access sites across Montana, numerous backcountry trailheads in Colorado, the more $14 million that has been invested in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota, and the LWCF funds used to establish the Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge in Pennsylvania. Congress let the fund expire last September, and now Congress can save our best conservation tool.
We are on the brink of an all-time moment to conserve our sporting and outdoor heritage. Please urge your representatives to vote YES on S.47.
