WLA Chairman Terry Jones had his op-ed published in today’s CT Post, supporting putting a constitutional amendment in place to better protect our state lands – particularly our conservation and agricultural lands. As he says in his piece,
“As our Connecticut General Assembly grinds towards it’s May 4th adjournment, there is hidden in the drumbeat of budget negotiations a quiet, cost free gem waiting to sparkle for our Connecticut environment.
It is Senate Joint Resolution 36 (SJ36), which would establish a Constitutional Amendment to better protect public lands from being sold, swapped, or given away without adequate public process.
Three other states in our region, New York, Massachusetts, and Maine provide similar protection for their public lands. Connecticut voters deserve the opportunity to ratify this Constitutional Amendment to protect our land in this November’s election.”
Please take a few minutes today and call your Senator! Ask them to bring Senate Joint Resolution 36 to the floor for a vote!
