Dear Mr. President, Senators and Representatives:

On behalf of our millions of members and supporters, we write to emphasize the importance of restoring funding for environmental programs and avoiding environmentally damaging policy riders in the FY16 Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations bills.

Both the House and Senate Interior and Environment Appropriations bills are deeply flawed, and we view recent developments stalling those harmful bills as an opportunity to entirely revisit the FY16 Interior appropriations process. We urge both chambers not to move forward with these bills that undermine popular environmental investments and bedrock environmental laws through dozens of drastic policy riders.

Re: Support for H.R. 2983’s innovative drought solutions that will benefit communities, farmers, and the environment.

Dear Representative Huffman:

On behalf of the undersigned organizations, we write to express our support for H.R. 2983, your recently introduced legislation that provides real drought solutions that will benefit California’s communities, farmers, and the environment.  Instead of blaming the environment and pitting certain water users against others like H.R. 2898, H.R. 2983 would provide new investments in lasting water solutions, growing the economy while also protecting our rivers, wildlife, and the thousands of jobs that depend on them.

H.R. 2983 authorizes and helps fund innovative water supply measures like water recycling and stormwater capture and focuses on improving outdated, inefficient water-related infrastructure. Investments in these modern water supply solutions could create millions of acre feet of new water supply for cities and farms in California and across the west, taking pressure off of imperiled rivers and streams and providing a more drought resistant water supply.  The bill also authorizes improved management of existing surface water reservoirs, watershed restoration, and projects to reduce evaporative losses from existing infrastructure.

Dear Conferee:

We are writing to urge you to ensure that a number of destructive, controversial and extraneous anti- environmental provisions that have been included in H.R. 1735, the National Defense Authorization Act for 2016, are not included in the final conference report on the legislation.

OPPOSE THE FY16 Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Funding Act (HR 2822) & Recommendations on Key Environmental Amendments

Dear Representative,

On behalf of our millions of members and supporters nationwide, we write in opposition to the Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016. The bill includes funding levels that are woefully inadequate to protect the environment and a bevy of policy riders that would weaken our bedrock environmental protections. Amendments could make the bill even more extreme as measures calculated to undermine environmental protections and conservation priorities are proposed on the floor.

Critical funding legislation must not be treated as a vehicle for provisions meant to hobble basic protections for clean air and water, undermine protections for our most vulnerable species, and plunder our public lands and waters.

We urge you to oppose HR 2822 and all anti-environment amendments and support those amendments that would protect our air, water, lands, wildlife, and climate.

Dear Senator,

Oppose destructive policy riders in the FY 2016 Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations bill
