Wisconsin's "Park Place" Noticeably Absent From League Of Conservation Parks Letter To Paul Ryan

A letter from the Wisconsin League Of Conservation Voters asking House Speaker Paul Ryan to protect funding for public lands was signed by more than 300 local officials in Wisconsin.

The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has provided approximately $212 million to Wisconsin to protect places like the Ice Age Trail, Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, St. Croix National Scenic River, and Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. The letter urges Speaker Paul Ryan to lead Congress in a pro-parks agenda by reauthorizing the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) before it expires this year.

Noticeably absent from the list of signers were officials from Paul Ryan's hometown of Janesville, once known as "Wisconsin's Park Place." The letter was hand delivered to Speaker Ryan’s office in Janesville and Washington.

Paul Ryan scores a miserable 11% with the League of Conservation Voters.
