Indiana Conservation Alliance 2015 Priorities

INCA’s John Ulmer reminds us that March 24 is Conservation Day at the Statehouse!

Whether you are attending or not, please contact your Senator or Representative and ask them to join INCA organizations for Mid-Morning Snacks in the Rotunda. While inviting them, let them know of your support for INCA’s priorities … it is important that they hear from you.

1. Ask legislators to continue the $2 million general fund biennial appropriation for the Clean Water Indiana program CWI.

2. Ask legislators for increased funding for the Indiana Heritage Trust (IHT) to $2.5 million in the second year of the biennium.

3. Ask legislators for an overall increase in the budget for the Department of Natural Resources.

4. Express INCA’s opposition to legislation, HB 1453, which legalizes shooting deer behind fences.

Senators can be contacted at 1-800-382-9467.

Democratic Representatives can be contacted at 1-800-382-9842 and Republican Representatives at 1800-382-9841.

(you may want to ask to speak to their office rather than leave a message)

Fact sheets on each of the above priorities are available at INconservation.org.
