Conservation Lobby Day

Yesterday, several members of the Francis Beidler Forest staff traveled to Columbia to discuss with their representatives and senators various issues of concern for the conservation community.

On the agenda were the continuation of funding for the Conservation Bank, the Atlantic Compact (H.3545) dealing with the Barnwell nuclear waste repository, Green Buildings (H3034), and the Priority Investment Act (S.266). Sen. Randy Scott and Rep. Patsy Knight were able to come out of their respective chambers and discuss the issues with the Beidler Forest staff.
