Congressman Huffman Releases Draft Legislation

In early August of 2017, Congressman Jared Huffman released a piece of draft public lands legislation for Northwest California.

Developed in collaboration with a coalition of local businesses, landowners, biologists, conservation organizations, hunters, and anglers, this proposal would protect our wild lands and rivers and expand recreational opportunities while restoring watersheds and managing for fire.
