Recovering America’s Wildlife Act passes the House and goes to the Senate

Congress sometimes surprises by passing legislation that makes a few people happy outside of Washington.

“It was a fantastic day,” said Kendra Wecker, Ohio Division of Wildlife Chief, in response to the House’s recent passage of the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act, aka RAWA.

The bill then goes to the Senate.

RAWA, which has broad support among conservation groups and some outdoor trade associations, would dramatically increase federal funds available to states for projects aimed at halting or reversing wildlife decline.

The bill, which Wecker calls “a tremendous opportunity to strengthen wildlife conservation in Ohio and across the country,” is on the Senate’s legislative calendar, meaning a vote is expected to take place sooner. only later.
