LWCF permanently reinstated

Back in October, things were looking grim for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF)

Now, we are where should be. The LWCF is reinstated.  This permanent reinstatement of the LWCF was included in the Energy Policy Modernization Act of 2016.

“This is a great day for conservation in America.  The Senate has voted to make America’s most important conservation and recreation program permanent, enshrining a simple promise made to the American people more than 50 years ago – that proceeds from public resource extraction will be dedicated to the protection of our greatest natural parks and outdoor places,” said Alan Rowsome, Senior Director of Government Relations for Lands at the Wilderness Society and Co-Chair of the Land and Water Conservation Fund Coalition.

Let us celebrate.

The wild lands are protected a bit more.
