Help defend funding for LWCF
We urgently need your help to ensure funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) in the next long term spending bill. Since deliberations began in Congress, LWCF has already sustained severe cuts and the House of Representatives proposed an draconian 80% cut in their proposed budget.
These cuts will have an immediate impact on outdoor recreation and sportsmen's activities on our public lands, working forests and ranches, local parks and wildlife habitats.
It is important to note that LWCF is not funded with taxpayer dollars. Instead, LWCF is authorized to receive $900 million from a dedicated account of offshore oil and gas leases intended to offset the negative consequences of oil drilling.
