LCV Statement on Gov. Bush’s Public Lands Plan

Oct 21, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, presidential candidate Jeb Bush officially unveiled his public lands plan. In response, LCV National Press Secretary Seth Stein issued the following statement:

“Jeb Bush’s proposal comes straight out of the playbook of Nevada’s own Cliven Bundy. His plan puts the drinking water of one-in-three Americans at risk by blocking the EPA’s Clean Water Rule. As if that weren’t alarming enough, it will weaken the protections for the public lands that belong to everyone, including our treasured National Parks, undoing a bipartisan legacy of conservation started by Republican President Teddy Roosevelt.”
