Support continues to grow for passage of a resolution this session as a second step in putting a constitutional amendment in place to better protect our state lands (including our conservation and agricultural lands) from being sold, traded, or given away without a more transparent public process.
The first step was successful passage last session, but because of the legislature’s rules for constitutional amendments, passage a second time is required. This week, a letter of support endorsed by more than 125 local, regional, state-wide, and national organizations with many thousands of members in Connecticut was sent to legislators asking them to support this important bill which has been reintroduced and referred to the GAE Committee as Senate Joint Resolution 6.
WLA applauds Connecticut Forest & Park Association for their tremendous leadership and Connecticut Land Conservation Council (and many others!) for their hard work on this last session and again this session. WLA is proud to be a partner in this effort!
