Washington’s divided legislature failed to adopt a capital budget during regular session, and there is a big difference between funding priorities in the House and the Senate.
The Nature Conservancy is supporting a capital budget appropriation to address our most challenging environmental threats, protect wildlife habitat and create local parks – all while providing jobs and improving Washington’s economy.
The package, called “Conservation Works,” is our chance to do real work to clean up and restore Puget Sound, restore forests, and improve habitat for wildlife and recreation for us all. It is one of the priorities this year of the broad Environmental Priorities Coalition.
The House version of the Capital budget comes much closer to fully funding this package of proven projects and programs.
Take action. Ask your state senator and representatives to support the House version of the capital budget request for the Conservation Works environmental community priority (see the handy look-up boxes below).
Because some of the most important decisions are made in Olympia each year, your voice can make a difference during the 2013 state legislative session.
Thank you for your willingness to speak up for nature and our quality of life in Washington.
The Nature Conservancy is the lead organization for the Environmental Priorities Coalition’s Conservation Works priority. This Priority promotes fiscally-responsible projects that benefit the entire state by protecting Puget Sound, reducing toxic runoff, expanding recreation opportunities and improving habitat and forest health. These projects will provide jobs while preserving the incredible natural resources that make our state a great place to live, work and raise a family.
