U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Ranking Member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, has announced $17,424,327 from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to support the habitat and conservation of fish and wildlife in West Virginia, and increase access to outdoor opportunities for people across the state.
“West Virginia is truly ‘wild and wonderful,’ and it is important that we take steps now to maintain that trademark for generations to come. It is also important that our outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen maintain access to our public lands, and that their proud culture and traditions are carried on. I’m pleased to announce this funding today, and will continue to advocate for the resources we need to preserve the aspects of our state that make it so special,” Ranking Member Capito said.
