On Tuesday, President Trump tweeted that he would like to see the Land & Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) fully funded by Congress. This request comes despite the Administration’s fiscal 2021 budget request which proposed cutting funding for the LWCF by nearly 97 percent. The program, which is funded by money from private sector oil and gas profits on federal lands, helps to pay for maintenance of public parks, wildlife refuges and other outdoor amenities. Last year, Senator Cory Gardner (R-Colorado) and Senator Steve Daines (R-Montana) were part of a bipartisan effort to fully fund LWCF, but the budget ultimately included only about half the funding for the program.
