Call to Action: Tell Senators Cornyn and Hutchison to support State Wildlife Action Plans

February 6th, 2009

More funding for urgent programs for the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife is possible through the federal State Wildlife Grants program! And, more funding for TPWD will create more green jobs for Texas.

Please call Texas Senators John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison and ask them to support the Bingaman amendment, number 195, of the economic stimulus package. Senator Bingaman agreed yesterday to include $50 million for State Wildlife Grants in his proposed amendment. This money would have a direct implication on Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s ability to successfully carry out the implementation of the Texas Wildlife Action Plan, a comprehensive blue print for wildlife conservation.

Please call Senators Cornyn and Hutchison right now and urge them to support this amendment:
Senator Cornyn: (202) 224-2934
Senator Hutchison: (202) 224-2934
