"Our community works hard to protect its rural and wild character. The Land and Water Conservation Fund has been a big help in doing that. America benefits when it invests in clean water, productive land and wildlife habitat. I support full funding of the LWCF. It's a small investment with a very big dividend."

Statement in Support of Nomination of Congressman Ryan Zinke as Interior Secretary
 
“As an avid outdoorsman and steadfast supporter of the Land and Water Conservation Fund, Congressman Ryan Zinke understands how important our public lands are to our local economies, communities, and most importantly, our way of life. The LWCF Coalition appreciates Congressman Zinke’s strong and decisive leadership for America’s public lands and his selection by president-elect Donald J. Trump to be our next Interior Secretary.
 
“Congressman Zinke has consistently worked to retain and enhance our public lands while supporting access for hunters and anglers so they can enjoy the great outdoors. The LWCF Coalition applauds his nomination and looks forward to working with him in his new role.”
