President Trump has gone out of his way to help with water preservation and conserving the environment.
Under bipartisan support from both Congress and the House of Representatives, President Trump signed the Land and Water Conservation Fund bill reauthorizing the fund permanently.
The bill has brought both sides of the political landscaped together when it seems like they are at odds with each other.
The initial intent of the Land and Water Conservation Fund was to dedicate money earned from the use of natural resources to help protect the million of acres of National Parks all over the country.
Places that require special attention and have special needs will receive the funding that is needed to protect the areas the way that they should be.
Leaders on both sides of the fence have worked hard and long to see the law become endorsed once again.
The new law is seen by many as the balance waiver to the President opening up new areas to drilling and mining.
The House of Representatives voted 363 to 62 and Congress voted 92-8 to send the bill to the President. The President made it law by adding his signature to validate the hard work of the nation’s leaders and public servants.
The bill really packs no cost to the citizens of the country as the money comes from natural resources for its funding.
It has contributed 42,000 projects and helped preserve over 2 million acres around the nation.
This is one of those bills that needed to be signed.
With this re-authorization new lands and areas can be opened up to future mining and drilling which in turn can only help the economy and the environment.
In addition to the bill being signed into law, the President has also signed in to the law the Wildlife Innovation and Longevity Driver Act.
The bill helps people protect animal life that is being threatened, it would help manage invasive species, and help put a stop to poaching in other countries.
Both parties had a part in the bill’s development.
The United States under the leadership of President Trump has become the world’s leader in wildlife protection and management. The new Act will help with the following:
- The Department of the Interior’s Partners for Fish and Wildlife will receive funding through 2022.
- Empower agencies to combat invasive species.
- Help agencies protect endangered species.
- Provide money to be given for competition winners that develop technology to help stop poaching and animal trafficking, and other advances with wildlife development.
Places like Florida have seen several invasive species move into the state with horrific results.
Natural habitat is being destroyed by invasive plant life. The state has also seen many of the native wildlife critically reduced in numbers by species not native to the state.
This bill and others like it give wildlife professionals the ability and resources that they need to help manage and combat these destructive animals and plant life.
Many of the wildlife experts have had to enlist the help of citizens to help with the control of these animals. Each team is empowered with the tools they need to capture and tag certain animals and in some cases eliminate harmful species members.
The President of the United States wants to see the landscape of the nation stay the way it has been throughout the nations past.
President Trump knows that there needs to be a balance between protecting water and the environment and allowing companies to explore new drilling areas and mining natural resources.
By working on behalf of both industries there has been growth and jobs created as well as millions of acres of land protected for future generations to enjoy and manage as they grow into adults.
The current administration has set in motion to help protect the vital areas of this country for years to come.
Both sides of the political landscape will need to continue to work together to ensure that there remains a strong balance of both nature and industry growth.
