Thank you to all who made calls!!!!!! In case you haven't heard, with bi-partisan support, the Tennessee Senate and House passed a budget with FULL funding for the Real Estate Transfer Fund! $16.5 million restored for: State Parks Fund: $3.1 million Local Parks Fund: $3.7 million Wetlands Fund: $6.5 million Agricultural Fund: $3.2 million ACTION: If you have a minute, thank your legislators: www.legislature.state.tn.us This effort was a real nail-biter and the fund was almost lost several times during the process. The Forever Green Tennessee campaign, mounted by Tennessee Parks and Greenways Foundation, and all the calls and letters that the conservation community sent, were vital. It REALLY WAS the volume of calls that made the difference! "Thank you all for making this happen. This is your victory. I hope you will take time to celebrate this good news for our woods, waters, and wildlife and for future generations. Please be sure to thank your state senator and representatives for supporting Forever Green Tennessee.
