Proud supporter of:
From Texas Alliance’s newsletter: “Representatives Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) and Debbie Dingell (D-MI) introduced the bipartisan Recovering America’s Wildlife Act, H.R. 4647, which will provide $1.3 billion annually from existing federal revenues for state-led projects to restore fish and wildlife habitats. More than $60 million per year would be for projects in Texas.
Passage of H.R. 4647 would direct a portion of existing royalties from energy and mineral production on federal lands and waters to the Wildlife Conservation and Restoration Program. State wildlife agencies will distribute the money to projects for habitat restoration, scientific research, protecting land, establishing conservation easements, and other initiatives listed in the state’s Wildlife Action Plan to conserve Species of Greatest Conservation Need.”
