In light of the House of Representative’s recent Capital Budget proposal, which unfairly cut 15 valuable land acquisition projects, the Coalition has worked diligently to get media coverage throughout the state. It is imperative that advocates continue to speak out and urge the House to restore the integrity of the WWRP by adding these projects back in.
We encourage our supporters to share these articles and opinion pieces far and wide—especially with your elected officials!
