WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 19, 2020) — The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund has endorsed U.S. Representative David Joyce of Ohio for re-election, citing his leadership on Great Lakes restoration, wildlife conservation, and protecting public lands.
“At a time when bipartisanship is in short supply, Rep. Joyce tirelessly work across the aisle to find collaborative solutions to restore our natural resources,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund. “Championing Great Lakes protection, investing in habitat restoration, and fighting to conserve America’s wildlife heritage, Rep. Joyce is an unwavering champion for conservation.
“Ohio and the Great Lakes are well served with leaders like Rep. Joyce stepping up to protect habitat and wildlife through high impact programs like the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. From safeguarding Ohio’s drinking water to ensuring our outdoor way of life for future generations, Rep. Joyce has shown himself to be a true ally of the environment and deserving of re-election.”
Joyce, who represents Ohio’s 14th Congressional District, serves on the U.S. House Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior, the Environment, and Related Agencies. A strong advocate for wildlife and the outdoor economy, Joyce has co-sponsored a series of conservation bills, including the Restore Our Parks and Public Lands Act, Chronic Wasting Disease Research Act, and the RECYCLE Act. Recently, he introduced bipartisan legislation to extend the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area’s funding authorization for 15 years and increase the funding cap by $10 million.
