Conservation Works

To prevent attempts to weaken, delay, or rollback state environmental laws and programs that are critical for clean air, clean water and healthy communities.

The Sound
Update: May 1, 2013

Budget negotiations between the House and Senate will be the key focus for the legislature as we enter into Special Session.

The environmental community's Conservation Works priority, is a package of common-sense projects in the Capital Budget that protect our quality of life, create jobs and address costly threats from forest fires, toxic pollution, and flooding. 

Where we stand:  Both the House and Senate have their own version of the budget and they are quite different.  The House’s capital budget made stronger investments in Conservation Works, investing $97.1 million more than the Senate. The House also respected objective ranking approaches designed to identify the best projects for the state’s dollars, while the Senate selected projects for political reasons.
