National Wildlife Federation Action Fund Presses Ernst to Invest in Our National Parks, Outdoor Recreation Economy

Budget Deal Critical to Supporting Jobs, Our National Outdoor Heritage

WASHINGTON, D.C. (December 10, 2019) — The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund urged U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) to invest in Iowa and the nation’s public lands and outdoor recreation economy by supporting a budget deal instead of a continuing resolution. Ernst’s leadership is essential to ensuring our national parks and public remain accessible for all Iowans.

“Our national parks and public lands are central to our shared heritage and Iowa’s outdoor recreation economy,” said Karla Raettig, executive director of the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund. “Senator Ernst must help pass a final budget deal now to deliver the certainty our parks and lands need. Anything less leaves Iowa’s $649 million outdoor recreation economy and outdoor heritage at risk.”
