2016 a Chance for Bipartisan Progress on Safeguarding America’s Outdoor Traditions

President Obama delivered his final State of the Union address Tuesday night, reaffirming his support for cutting climate-disrupting carbon pollution and helping “American businesses to produce and sell the energy of the future.”

Collin O’Mara, president and chief executive officer of the National Wildlife Federation, attended the State of the Union and said in response:

“President Obama has already laid the foundation of a strong legacy on confronting climate change, growing our clean energy economy, and protecting America’s public lands and outdoor traditions. The National Wildlife Federation and our affiliates encourage President Obama to cement that legacy by continuing to expand our National Parks, Refuges and Monuments, improving the resilience of our forests, wetlands, waterways and other wildlife habitats, and continuing to reduce emissions by reforming fossil fuel leasing and cutting methane pollution from the oil and gas industry.

“In addition, our leaders this year have a chance to make real progress on safeguarding America’s great outdoors, an area of true bipartisan common ground. We’ll be working with Congress and President Obama to pass legislation expanding investments in wildlife and habitat protection, reforming the ways we fight wildfires and manage forests, and finalizing chemical safety reforms, as well as a bipartisan sportsmen’s bill.
