MISSOULA, MT -- "America's conservation future looks much brighter today thanks to Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT). The bipartisan America's Climate Security Act of 2007, sponsored by Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Sen. John Warner (R-VA), is a strong bill to protect people and wildlife from global warming. As a key swing vote on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, the support of Sen. Baucus takes us a giant step closer to an historic vote in the United States Senate.

"I know that Senator Baucus has long been deeply concerned about global warming, but he has also been concerned that the wrong legislative approach could hurt rather than help efforts to combat climate change. His endorsement of the Lieberman-Warner legislation reflects his careful, thoughtful approach to climate legislation, his years of experience on the Environment and Public Works Committee, and his confidence that this bill is the right vehicle to address global warming. The National Wildlife Federation agrees with his assessment and thanks him for his endorsement and support."
