US Senator Gardner: The Signing Ceremony for Bipartisan Public Lands Package
I had the privilege of attending the signing ceremony for the Natural Resources Management Act, the Lands Package that includes permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). After working on this issue for four years, LWCF has finally been permanently reauthorized. I have continued to champion this crown jewel of conservation programs throughout my time in the Senate because of how important it is to all Coloradans who love our great outdoors. The program directly impacts the public lands in Colorado and will be used to protect our state’s natural beauty for future generations.
