Take action: URGENT: North Carolina's natural heritage is being put at risk New legislative proposals jeopardize North Carolina's flagship conservation programs. North Carolina’s natural heritage in woven deep into the fabric of our great state. From the mountains to the coast, North Carolina — the land of the longleaf pine is known far and wide for the remarkable natural treasures that help define the culture of our state. But state legislators reconvening in Raleigh for a “lame duck” session are putting that at risk. Buried deep in a controversial election law bill — House Bill 1117 — is language that proposes to eliminate the governing boards that administer critical land and water conservation funding programs. A separate proposal in the state Senate — Senate Bill 821 — aims to do the same. Take action today: Tell your legislators to protect North Carolina’s Flagship Conservation Programs. Recipients Your State Senator or SenatorsYour State Representative or Representatives Message Oppose Repeal of Conservation Program Boards Dear [Decision Maker], * Personalize your message The Clean Water Management Trust Fund and the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund have both enjoyed broad bipartisan support since their creation. I support action to ensure these independent boards comply with recent court decisions so that they can continue to fund parks, greenways, game lands, military buffers, and countless other conservation projects across the state. Both Senate Bill 821 and Section 3 of House Bill 1117, miss the mark. Please oppose Senate Bill 821 and HB 1117 because they fail to fully secure a viable, long-term future for these important programs.
