Thank your Senator for supporting the Land and Water Conservation Fund!

Congress OVERWHELMINGLY passed the biggest public lands bill in a decade earlier this year. Thanks to their commitment to our public lands, the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) was permanently reauthorized to protect parks, green spaces, and millions of acres of public lands and waters for future generations. That means LWCF will be around for the long haul. But the fight is not over.

The next step in our campaign is to provide LWCF with full funding to ensure all communities have access to the outdoors and to address the legacy of injustice that has resulted in certain communities -- oftentimes communities of color, indigenous communities, and low-income communities -- lacking equitable access to nearby green spaces. We truly appreciate our champions in Congress for their commitment to fully funding LWCF -- a program that has benefitted almost every county nationwide.

Add your name: Thank Congressional champions for fighting for LWCF.

Hello, my name is _____ and I live in ______. 

I am calling to urge you to recognize the value of fully funding environmental programs. Environmental programs are a mere 1.9% of the state operating budget but these programs provide benefits to communities across the state through clean air, clean water, and thriving communities that make Washington a great place to live, work, and play.   

Specifically, I hope you will adopt a final budget that maintains funding for existing environmental programs and provide new funding for:

- Oil spill prevention (HB 1611)

- Reducing toxic pollution (HB 2182)

- The Clean Air Rule

- Puget Sound recovery

Thank you for all of your hard work during the 2017 legislative session and for considering my comments. I look forward to hearing from you, I can be reached at __(Phone Number)__.
