There’s still a chance the Senate will vote on the Recovering American’s Wildlife Act (S.2372) before the end of this legislative session! This is the most important bill in decades and will give TN millions of dollars to address habitat loss and recovery of declining birds! We’ve been trying to get it passed, literally, for more than 10years!
Please call or email Tennessee’s two Senators! We’ve even included a short script and the letter TOS recently sent.
Before the end of the 117th Congress I urge you to prioritize the passage of the bipartisan Recovering American’s Wildlife Act (S.2372). This bill will provide needed funds for the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and other wildlife professionals to implement the Tennessee Wildlife Action Plan, which is a roadmap to slowing and reversing the decline of 100s of wildlife species in our state. Please prioritize passage of this extremely important legislation.
RECOVERING AMERICA’S WILDLIFE ACT is still waiting to be brought to the Senate floor for a vote. NOW is the time to call our two Tennessee Senator’s….Bill Hagerty is a signatory on the Bill so please when you contact him remember to THANK him for and encourage him to vote yes when the bill comes to the floor. Regarding Marsha Blackburn, please encourage her to vote yes…so far she has not expressed an opinion on the Bill.
