Bipartisan support for Recovering America’s Wildlife Act, H.R.4647 (Fortenberry and Dingell) continues to grow. Thanks to the hard work of Alliance members and individuals nationwide, 71 Members of Congress (33 Republicans and 38 Democrats) have co-sponsored, including 5 Texans, Rep. Kay Granger, Rep. Pete Sessions, Rep. Gene Green, Rep. Beto O’ Rourke and Rep. Henry Cuellar.
Let’s keep up this terrific momentum – we all benefit if this landmark legislation is passed.
Texas would be eligible to receive more than $63 million per year, transforming efforts to conserve and restore more than 1,300 fish and wildlife species of concern here in the Lone Star State. Many impactful programs could be added or expanded — research, species reintroductions, habitat restoration, conservation easements, outdoor recreation and nature education.
