Dear Outdoor Enthusiasts:
Passage of the original Conservation Bank legislation in 2002 was made possible when businesses and citizens combined forces and convinced a bipartisan majority of legislators to support protecting special places around the state. It is heartening to see history begin to repeat itself in 2018. With the passage of a Conservation Bank re-authorization bill in the SC House of Representatives, we are a big step closer to extending the life of this state agency that has been the single most important factor in the preservation and conservation of some of our most precious natural resources. We are grateful for the overwhelming vote in the House today and especially for the leadership of Rep. Brian White and others who championed the Conservation Bank.
Thanks to all of you who made this critical step happen. And thanks to our lobbyist Trip King who has dedicated so many hours to passage.
