Albuquerque Business First: Senators seek permanent solution to conservation funding

Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) and Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM) are among 41 senators calling for Congress to create a permanent funding solution for the Land and Water Conservation Fund.

“The Land and Water Conservation Fund guarantees a prosperous and vital future for the next generation while preserving our uniquely American way of life across this nation,” the senators wrote in a letter to the Senate leadership. “Accordingly, we urge you to enact a permanent and comprehensive solution for this vital program before the 113th Congress adjourns.”
