"The Land and Water Conservation Fund is critically important to the American economy and our way of life. I support legislation that will guarantee full funding for this program. The livelihoods of many Americans and the health of our land and water depend on it."

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.”
