Wednesday, April 11, 2012, 10:00 a.m.

CONCORD, NH – Wednesday, April 11, 2012, at 10:00 a.m., Congressman Charles F. Bass (NH-02) will hold a press conference with Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS) Chief Executive Officer Will Manzer and representatives from the Nature Conservancy and the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests to discuss threats to the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and why this program is vital to New Hampshire.

Bass has long been a supporter of LWCF.  He recently supported two bipartisan letters to the House Appropriations Committee urging sufficient funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and the Community Forest Program (CFP) during the Fiscal Year 2013 appropriations process.  Last year, Bass’ amendment to restore funding for LWCF passed the House during debate on the Interior Appropriations Bill.

The press conference will take place at Eastern Mountain Sports, located at 68 Fort Eddy Road in Concord.
