Congratulations, You Won on LWCF, Thank Conferees By
You won. Those of you who made your calls, sent your
e-mails and faxes, you are responsible for one of the biggest Congressional
wins in private property rights history.
Tens of thousands of landowners will get to keep their
homes, and property. The Park Service, Forest Service, Fish and Wildlife
Service and BLM will have far less money to buy out homes, property, and
destroy rural communities.
Your allies in the House stayed the course. Mostly
Republicans. They stuck up for you. Now you need to let them know how much you
appreciate their effort.
Below are the Conferees, their faxes and e-mails. The
Senate fought hard to load up the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) with
an extra $700 million this year and next as a trust fund to take private land,
homes and communities and convert them all into government ownership.
Congress will still give the LWCF some money as they
usually do each year. You need to thank all the Conferees from the House and
remind them to hand tough in the future to hold down funding for the LWCF.
Your actions in the past few weeks kept the Greens from
setting a precedent of approximately one billion dollars a year for LWCF.
But the Greens won’t stop.
Shortly the battle in the House and Senate will be over
an Omnibus Federal Lands Bill where the Senate will try to pass every land grab
bill they did not get so far this year and more.
You stopped the Harry Reid Omnibus Federal Lands bill in
2010 with over 200 bills in it. You will have to do it again.
Don’t be surprised if they try to add the LWCF to the
Omnibus Federal Lands Bill.
Your Senators are the most likely to cave in on an
Omnibus Federal Land Bill. And you are in grave danger.
