E-M:/ Land and Water Conservation Funds request cut in half by Bush

Enviro-Mich message from "Anne Woiwode" <anne.woiwode@sierraclub.org>

Greenwire is reporting that the Bush Administration is requesting less than
half the amount of money in the FY 04 budget for Land and Water Conservation
grants than was authorized last year. This effects both the federal lands
acquisitions and state grants for acquisition, according to the report. I
don't have a website on this, so can't give you all a place to look it up,
but I expect other news reports can be found on this as well.
