More federal money for wildlife conservation

In addition to signing the Partners for Fish and Wildlife Act, President Bush recently put his John Hancock on the North American Wetlands Conservation Act Reauthorization (H.R. 5539) and the Great Lakes Fish and Wildlife Restoration Act (S. 2430). The former provides money for wetlands restoration in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

If I understand correctly, Congress approved other bills that await the president's signature. These include the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act Reauthorization (S. 1410), the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Reauthorization Act (H.R. 1428) and various regional items related to national wildlife refuges.

If you want your elected officials to pay attention to conservation funding, consider checking Thomas on a regular basis. Bill text searches for "wildlife" and "bird" can keep you abreast of legislative matters. Consider it a way to repay the birds!
