As an avid hunter and fisherman, I understand the importance of protecting our environment and preserving our natural resources for future generations. From Little River Canyon to Dauphin Island, Alabama is home to many natural wonders. We rely on our environment not just for its beauty, but also as a driver of our state's economy. I’m fighting to preserve Alabama's outdoor treasures by cosponsoring legislation to permanently authorize the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). This legislation will ensure Alabama's rivers and wilderness can be enjoyed for generations to come.
Businesses also have a role in protecting our environment. Climate change is a scientific reality, and it is important to work with other nations to promote business practices that are environmentally friendly without burdening them with unnecessary and expensive regulations.
