Stop Another Raid on Land Protection Funding

 

On Tuesday October 7th, the County Legislature will meet to consider the recommendation of an ad-hoc committee for $80 million in long-term budget cuts. Astonishingly, nearly 40% of all the proposed cuts ($30 million) are slated to come from authorized commitments for land protection. This decision would completely undermine the efforts of community advocates to restore $30 million of raided Drinking Water Protection Program funds.

 

Please take a moment to send a letter to the Suffolk County Executive and Legislature right now, urging them to vote no on IR 1830 and reminding them that all land protection funding is desperately needed in part because land protection remains the most cost-effective way to protect and restore water quality for the future.
