WASHINGTON. D.C. – This week, Congressman Frank Guinta (NH-01) introduced an amendment to the Department of Interior Appropriations package to increase funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund by $16 million for essential outdoor programs.
“As Granite Staters know, we are blessed to call one of the most pristine ecological environments in our nation ‘home.’ From the Seacoast region to the White Mountain National Forest to Lake Winnipesauke – outdoor recreation and programs are vital to our economy supporting $4.2 billion in consumer spending, nearly 50,000 Granite State jobs and $293 million annually in state and local revenue. We must continue to fight on behalf of the Land, Water and Conservation Fund to strengthen vital programs which preserve our beautiful state.”
