San Francisco, CA

Diane Regas, President and CEO of The Trust for Public Land, today issued the following statement regarding the House’s passage of the public lands package, most specifically the permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund:

“Public lands bring Americans together, and that’s why Republicans and Democrats in the House voted overwhelmingly today for a bill that ensures the Land and Water Conservation Fund will be around for our kids and grandkids,” said Diane Regas, president and CEO of The Trust for Public Land. “Today’s historic vote, following a 92-8 vote in the Senate, means that more people can have access to hiking trails, city parks and wild landscapes. Americans expect their public officials to work together, and today’s vote to give more people access to public lands is something we can all celebrate.”
