Senate Should Adopt House Plan on Critical Recreation Funding

April 26, 2011

Read an Op-Ed by Mike Deller, Washington state director for the Trust for Public Land, in the Everett Herald urging the state Senate to adopt the House proposal for funding the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP).

Excerpt: “Over the last 21 years WWRP has taken root as one of the state’s most popular and successful programs, enjoying broad and well-deserved support for its mandate to protect and improve state and local parks, preserve habitat for fish and wildlife and save working farms. Bravo to the House for recognizing and fighting for this important project. Let’s hope that the Senate steps back and re-examines what this program means to our economy and to our way of life, and follows suit.”
