This month, Congress has a truly historic opportunity to invest billions of dollars into three things that would add up to a healthier future for trout and salmon, and our communities:
- Protecting and restoring fish and wildlife habitat in National Parks, National Forests, wildlife refuges, and other public lands;
- Making America’s lands and waters more resilient to drought, wildfire, and floods; and
- Encouraging clean energy development to reduce carbon emissions.
Trout Unlimited strongly supports all these investments, which are included in the budget reconciliation bill Congress is developing as we speak.
|We need your help! Take a moment today to send a note to your U.S. senators asking them to support provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act that will help fisheries and communities weather a changing climate. “Anglers are already seeing the effects of climate change on rivers and streams,” TU President and CEO Chris Wood said last week. “Unnaturally intense wildfires, more frequent floods, and punishing drought are pushing native and wild trout and salmon to the brink and putting our communities at risk. It’s time for Congress to step up on this pressing issue and advance this legislation into law.” |
Tell Congress to take action now. Thanks for all you do for wild and native trout and salmon.
Steve Moyer Vice President for Government Affairs
