The Land And Water Conservation Fund Needs Your Help!

The U.S. Senate has not concluded its consideration on the Energy Policy Modernization Act (EPMA), which includes a bipartisan compromise reached by Senate Energy and Natural Resources Chairman Lisa Murkowski (AK) and Ranking Member Maria Cantwell (WA) to permanently reauthorize the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF).  ASLA is asking advocates to contact their legislators urging them to support the Murkowski-Cantwell provision and to oppose any amendments to weaken the LWCF provision. 

The ASLA Government Affairs team sent an alert via the ASLA iAdvocate Network, urging advocates to contact their Senators to oppose any amendments which undermine the bipartisan LWCF compromise. You can send messages to your Senators today and forward the alert to your chapter leaders and colleagues. Thank you in advance for your help.

Legislators and congressional staffers are using Twitter to communicate with their constituents and other stakeholders. ASLA is working to expand its Twitter presence and increase followers on Capitol Hill and across state legislatures. Take a moment and follow us on Twitter today!
