The Spokesman Review writes that the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program is worthy of significant funding in the next budget cycle.
Excerpt: “In a perfect Olympia, state lawmakers would give the same consideration to funding Eastern Washington programs as they do for those on the West Side.
Native wildlife habitat protection would be evaluated on par with developing soccer fields.
Legislators would rally kudos from hunters and anglers as well as bird watchers and hikers.
While Utopia isn’t around the corner, a program that fosters these values is alive, proven and deserving of another round of significant funding by the 2013 Washington Legislature.”
