ACTION ALERT: Contact your Representative and ask them to vote "Yes" on H.R. 2936
The National Wild Turkey Federation needs your help. This week, the House will be voting on H.R. 2936, commonly referred to as the Resilient Federal Forests Act. We are urging our members to contact their representatives in Washington and ask them to vote YES on this importance piece of legislation.
The purpose of H.R. 2936 is to provide disaster funding for fighting wildfires and to increase proactive forest management in order to prevent catastrophic wildfires, promote healthy and sustainable forests and create young forest habitat for wildlife.
The issues our forests face continue to grow as wildfires become more disastrous, insects and diseases continue to cause destruction, and resources are being spent on redundant processes and unnecessary litigation instead of active forest management.
To better understand the issue, read an editorial from NWTF CEO Becky Humphries in The Hill.
Reaching out to your representatives only takes a few moments. You can find a directory of Representatives here. https://www.house.gov/representatives/
Please call now to voice your support and ask for your Representative to vote "Yes!"
