Full funding of Land Water Conservation Fund passes key Senate hurdle

Some rare bipartisanship coming out of DC.

A key Senate panel has voted to fully and permanently fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund, a move that conservation groups see as a significant victory.

The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee voted Tuesday morning to permanently authorize and completely fund the program, which was established in 1964 to help with outdoor projects on public lands. The bill passed with bipartisan support out of the committee and now faces a full floor vote.
