“Today our representatives in Washington reached common ground on an issue that affects every American: the Senate passed legislation to permanently reauthorize the Land and Water Conservation Fund,” said Diane Regas, President and CEO of The Trust for Public Land. “After decades of bipartisan advocacy, I’m gratified that Congress is finally making LWCF a priority, even as I’m mindful of the hurdles yet to come. Congress must bring this legislation across the finish line and ensure LWCF is permanently reauthorized and fully funded, so every person in America has access to the parks and nature they need and deserve.”
