MT Raleigh Report: The Latest on Conservation Projects in the State Budget

Recently, lawmakers gave final approval to their version of the state’s $24 billion spending plan. While we hope Governor Cooper and legislative leaders will come to a resolution on a final budget soon, we are grateful that the General Assembly included a number of important investments for WNC in their version. Learn about those investments here.

Ask The General Assembly To Support WNC Rivers in the Budget

Over the past few months, MountainTrue has been working with lawmakers to support a number of conservation projects that could end up being adopted in the next state budget. These projects will help clean up hazardous spills like the one that happened last year on the Watauga River, fund expanded water quality monitoring and improved river access for anglers, boaters and swimmers. Contact your legislators to urge them to support clean water for WNC and ensure that they make it into the final budget.
