Washington, DC — In response to the introduction of the bipartisan bill permanently and fully funding the Land and Water Conservation Fund and addressing the maintenance backlog in our national parks and other public lands, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Conservation Program Director Alex Taurel:

“We welcome the introduction and the strong showing of support on this bipartisan bill providing funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund and to address the maintenance backlog in our national parks and other public lands.  Moments like this don’t come around very often in Washington, so we urge the Senate to move quickly to take up and pass this package as-is. This is long overdue—let’s get it done.”
