Forwarded from the Michigan Mountain Biking Association list:

> Dear Friends of the Land and Water Conservation Fund
>
> Thanks to your tremendous hard work and support, the Land and Water
> Conservation Fund scored a great victory today as members of the House
> Committee on Resources approved, 37 to 12,  the negotiated Conservation
> and Reinvestment Act, the $2.8 billion conservation package that
> includes $900 million in permanent funding  for LWCF, split evenly
> between federal and state programs and $125 million for urban parks and
> recreation under the UPARR program.
>
> After four hours of holding off amendments that would have impaired and
> restricted LWCF and other park and conservation programs, House
> Resources Committee Chairman Don Young (R-AK), with leadership from his
> Republican colleague Representative Billy Tauzin (R-LA), and ranking
> Democrat George Miller (D-CA) secured committee passage of the bill,
> without amendment.  The Chairman and 12 other Republicans, along with
> all 24 Democrats on the committee, voted in favor of the bill. (See how
> the Committee Members voted below).
>
> Chairman Young, Representatives George Miller, Billy Tauzin, Bruce Vento
> (D-MI), Chris John (D-LA), and Tom Udall (D-NM), as well as
> Representative John Dingell (D-MI) -- who is not on the committee but
> played a critical "behind the scenes" role -- deserve a lot of credit
> for crafting and piloting a negotiated Conservation and Reinvestment Act
> that includes a fully and permanently funded  LWCF that retains the
> original integrity of the act.
>
> We commend these members for their leadership -- and those who supported
> the final package -- for taking this first critical step to restoring
> the LWCF promise and making it a reality. We hope you will too. Please
> email them at CARA@mail.house.gov.
