Ask the Board of Natural Resources to develop a carbon policy

The state’s Department of Natural Resources manages over two million acres of public forestland in Washington and yet has no explicit policy on how to incorporate climate and carbon science into management decisions. The Board of Natural Resources, which sets policies for the agency, has the unique ability to directly influence the amount of carbon that is stored in and released from our state’s forests.

Ask the Board to develop and adopt a carbon and climate change policy for our state-managed forests!

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)__.
