"We appreciate the House Natural Resource Committee working to advance a bipartisan bill today to permanently authorize the Fund. This is a notable step forward to have both sides of the aisle recognize the great importance and impact of the Land and Water Conservation Fund.

We look forward to working with members from both parties and both chambers to finally provide long-term security for this critical fund."
