The #GreatAmericanOutdoorsAct has passed the House! This bill will FULLY fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which protects public lands, local parks, and open spaces that are critical for our community’s health, wellbeing, and the conservation of our heritage. 1/4 Image
For years, our public lands have been underfunded. This bill allows for opportunities of investment in communities of color that have historically lacked access to open and public spaces. 2/4
This is a huge win for conservation, & would not be possible without the leadership of indigenous communities who are the original caretakers of these lands. Their voice and leadership must continue to be centered in the fight to conserve and protect public lands. 3/4

Since @CoryGardner claims he'll fight for Colorado's #publiclands, today seems like a good day for a (THREAD) to remind folks that as Colorado's Senator, Cory:
1) As recently as 2018, voted to gut the #LWCF, the very policy he touts leading in this ad
#copolitics #cosen
2) Voted to confirm Ryan Zinke & David Bernhardt, nominated by Trump to oversee our public lands, whose policies have dismantled a century’s worth of advancement on environmental protection, trampling on human health and wildlife protections #cosen #copolitics
3) Voted for a resolution against the Bureau of Land Management’s Planning 2.0 which would permanently eliminate rules intended to include communities and the public in conversations about oil leasing decisions on public lands #copolitics #cosen

Today, the U.S. Senate took decisive action on a #PublicLands package with major wins for WA state — safeguarding our environment, bolstering outdoor recreation and restoring ecosystems. We owe a debt of gratitude to @SenatorCantwell for her unwavering leadership.
All Washingtonians will benefit from the permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund. This program has invested nearly $700 M in over 600 projects in WA state over its 50 year history, protecting our natural resources and promoting our quality of life. #LWCF
I'm grateful for the bipartisan work of @RepNewhouse and @RepKimSchrier to secure funding for the Yakima Basin Integrated Plan in the #PublicLands package. As an issue I've worked on since serving Yakima Valley in Congress in '94, I know this is huge for the people of Central WA.

Chispa AZ is pleased to see permanent reauthorization of #LWCF move through Congress. We applaud the Senate’s actions to invest in open spaces for all communities at the national, state and local level. 1/3
We are thankful for our public lands champions that have been fighting for this investment. As this moves through the House, we are particularly thankful Chairman @RepRaulGrijalva is in leadership to move this forward. 2/3
We look forward to seeing the House pass the Senate bill to ensure successful, permanent reauthorization for LWCF and be the first of many conservation victories in the 116th Congress. #SaveLWCF 3/3

THREAD: @SecretaryZinke’s hearing before @NatResources / @NRDems starts in 5 min. Live tweets and fact-checks below. Stream:
First up: @RepRobBishop thanks Zinke for focusing on "core" functions rather than "special interest groups." Translation: "Core" = oil, gas, uranium companies. "Special interest" = public input.
Next up, welcome from @RepRaulGrijalva, promising to "exercise oversight responsibilities." Intends to focus on Zinke's "stewardship of taxpayer dollars" in light of Zinke's proposed budget cuts. First mention of Zinke's $139,000 door.
