Sportsmen oppose cuts in House funding bill | Great Falls Tribune | greatfallstribune.com

Among programs that face substantial budget cuts or total elimination are the North American Wetlands Conservation Fund, farm bill conservation programs, the Land and Water Conservation Fund, State and Tribal Wildlife Grants and the Clean Water Act.

“These programs not only protect hunting and fishing access for sportsmen and women, but they are also foundational to fish and wildlife habitat conservation, and stimulate local economies by creating jobs, particularly in rural communities,” said Ben Lamb of the Montana Wildlife Federation.

Budget cuts are not pretty. When there isn’t any money, there isn’t any money. The problem comes to where you put your priorities. Decide wrong and you put future generations at risk.

Take the time to find out who represents you in Washington and let them know how you feel about these issues and how they will affect you and your community. (Click here, put in your zip code, and find out who your reps are.)

Act now. If you don’t, who will?
