CONGRESS VOTES ON LAND AND WATER CONSERVATION FUND
-Walker Basin Conservancy releases statement regarding the House’s recent vote on the Land and Water Conservation Fund-
YERINGTON, Nev.—The creation of the Walker River State Recreation Area, the newest addition to Nevada’s State Park system in a generation, wouldn’t have been possible without support from the Land and Water Conservation Fund. This bipartisan program has been around for over five decades and we’re glad to see the House join the Senate in voting to revive it since it expired more than 120 days ago.
Permanent reauthorization, as well as full funding, of this key conservation tool is paramount for successful conservation and recreation initiatives in Nevada. We especially thank Nevada’s federal delegation, Sens. Cortez Masto and Rosen and Reps. Amodei, Titus, Horsford and Lee, for standing together to support this important bill.
