Recovering America’s Wildlife Act (H.R. 5650 would dedicate $1.3 billon to state conservation programs

Following the recent recommendations of the Blue Ribbon Panel on Sustaining America’s Diverse Fish and Wildlife Resources, Congressman Don Young (R-AL) and Congresswomen Debbie Dingell (D-MI) have introduced the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act (H.R. 5650) in the House of Representatives on July 6.

If passed, the legislation would dedicate $1.3 billion in federal funds annually to state conservation programs – a development holding significant promise for funding ODFW and the Oregon Conservation Strategy.
