The Trust for Public Land on President Trump’s Budget and LWCF

“Providing access to the outdoors for people takes years of informed, intentional planning to ensure that hikers, bikers, hunters and birders can experience the beauty of our natural waterways, mountains, trails and refuges, close to where they live,” said Bill Lee, Senior Vice President for Government Relations at The Trust for Public Land. “That’s why the Land and Water Conservation Fund is so critically important for today, and for future generations of outdoor enthusiasts. I’m confident that a strong, bipartisan coalition of Republicans and Democrats will once again restore the funding for this program that was virtually eliminated in President Trump’s budget proposal today, and finally secure full and dedicated funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund for years to come.”
