As the Trump administration prepares to submit its first budget, proposals have surfaced to drastically reduce or even eliminate appropriations for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) — America’s most important federal land and water conservation program which funds essential programs in all 50 states.
Please join us in asking our representatives in Congress – Kathleen Rice and Tom Suozzi – to help us defend this critically important program by signing on to H.R. 502, legislation reintroduced in mid-January by Congressmen Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) and Patrick Meehan (R-PA ) to permanently authorize the Land and Water Conservation Fund.
* To reach the office of Congresswoman Kathleen Rice please call (202) 225-5516 (DC) or (516) 739-3008 (local) or email her staffer for the environment [email protected].
* To reach the office of Congressman Tom Suozzi please call (202) 225-3335 (DC) or (631) 923-4100 (local) or email his staffer for the environment [email protected].

In keeping with Super Bowl weekend, the best defense is a good offense.
Thanks for taking action for our environment.
