House Dems introduce bill to put 30% of US lands & waters in PA status by 2030

House Democrats introduced legislation Friday that would commit the U.S. to conserve 30 percent of the nation’s land and oceans by 2030, the latest push after the effort was introduced in the Senate in October.


“Globally, the loss of nature – accelerated by climate change – is putting up to one million species on the path to extinction. Conserving our lands and waters is essential to protecting humans and wildlife and stabilizing our climate,” Rep. Deb Haaland (D-N.M.), who is spearheading the effort in the House, said in a release.
