After Wasting 10 Trillion Dollars on Wars Abroad in a decade, Congressman from Missouri Says We have NO Money to take car of Things Important to America–like Water, Nature, Natural Resources and Health


Don’t buy this GOP propaganda!  Tell your GOP leaders and Reps in Washington to get their heads on straight.–kas

  1. If you want to send a message to an official who does not represent you, you can:
    1. Send a message to the Representative or Senator that represents you, and ask his or her office to forward it for you.
    2. Go to the website for the member of Congress you wish to contact to find a postal address and mail a letter.

Thank you for contacting me regarding funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and H.R. 1814.

H.R. 1814 would permanently reauthorize the LWCF, which currently expires at the end of Fiscal Year (FY) 2015. The fund was created by the LWCF Act of 1965 to help preserve, develop and assure access to outdoor recreation facilities to strengthen the health of U.S. citizens.   The LWCF is authorized to accumulate $900 million annually from designated sources, mostly from money derived through oil and gas leasing in the Outer Continental Shelf.   H.R. 1814 has been referred to the Committee on Natural Resources for further consideration.

Like you, I recognize the important role of focusing our nation’s resources on preserving our land and water resources. I believe in balancing the needs of the ecosystem with the needs of citizens who rely on the land to provide for themselves and their families.   Farmers and Sportsmen are some of our most important environmental stewards, and among the best in the world at knowing how to care for the Earth.

It is important for us as a nation to be good stewards of the environment.   However, the United States is facing an unprecedented budget shortfall which threatens the stability of our economy and the fiscal viability of future generations, who will have to repay our debt.   Families, businesses and especially the federal government all need to take caution to live within our means and prioritize how to best spend their money.  We must look at all programs as we search for savings in tackling this extremely important challenge.

Again, thank you for contacting me on this important issue. Hearing the views of all Missourians gives me the opportunity to better understand how important issues could impact the people of the Seventh District and the future interests of the nation.

For additional information regarding current legislation, my representation of the Seventh District, and to sign up to receive my monthly newsletter, I invite you to visit my website at  http://long.house.gov .

Sincerely,

Billy Long
Member of Congress
