Bipartisan Bill Proposed to Extend Conservation Program


Recommended Posts

The Wildlife Society -- On March 29, 2012, James Inhofe (R-OK), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, introduced the North American Wetland Conservation Act (NAWCA) reauthorization. Senator Inhofe was joined by Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, and five other co-sponsors: Senators David Vitter (R-LA), Thad Cochran (R-MS), Tim Johnson (D-SD), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and Mary Landrieu (D-LA). NAWCA was enacted in 1989 with the purpose of funding wetlands conservation projects in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico to benefit migratory birds and other wildlife. It works by matching federal grants with funds from state, federal, and private organizations, which has shown results of approximately $3 matched to every $1 federally invested.
