Immediate Action Please!!!

Authorizing the Hunt Unrestricted on National Treasures (HUNT) Act
http://bit.ly/2oMgVH7

Call your senators and tell them to vote AGAINST killing our treasured wildlife on our Public lands!! These parks have been deemed national treasures for the American people and they want to open them up for TROPHY HUNTING and "expansion" ANY hunting or " construction " on these beautiful lands that belong to US , tax paying American citizens ( not exclusive to trophy hunters) is unacceptable .

Please read the "background" below to learn about this toxic kill bill.

💥Ask your senator to vote AGAINST S733.💥 AND that includes the new "Section 502" which means --Wildlife Management in parks ---it uses the term systems ---this means National Parks, and what it states is that they will be allowed to go into any National Park and " MANAGE " the parks wildlife population ----this is sugar coating the following ----they want to HUNT and TRAP in our National parks - thank you ~Warrior for the Wolf for this updated info)

"Senator Lisa Murkowski R(AK) and Senator Martin Heinrich D(NM), along with CSC leaders, Senators Jim Risch R(ID), Joe Manchin D(WV), Deb Fischer R(NE), and Heidi Heitkamp D(ND), introduced a bipartisan sportsmen's package of legislation (S. 733) in the Senate."

The Democrats stood strong together and all voted against HJR 69. On this bill however, 3 are part of introducing this bill - to hunt treasured souls as well as allowing "construction and expansion " on OUR treasured lands.

Please call your Democratic senators first to secure their vote. 💥Ask your senator to vote AGAINST S733.💥

🐾FIND YOUR SENATOR: http://bit.ly/2nuSRIM

Then circle back and call your Rep/Ind Senator.

BACKGROUND:

Reauthorizing federal land open to hunting, fishing, and recreational shooting;

Reauthorizing the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act;
Exempts commercial filming permits for film crews of three or fewer, or for news gathering purposes;

Authorizing the Hunt Unrestricted on National Treasures (HUNT) Act
Amends the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act to allocate funds for construction and expansion of public target ranges on federal land;

Permanently establishes the Wildlife and Hunting Heritage Conservation Council Advisory Committee to advise the Secretaries of Interior and Agriculture on wildlife and habitat conservation, hunting, and recreational shooting.

Allows the transport of bows or crossbows across National Park Service (NPS) land;
Allows use of qualified hunter volunteers to manage wildlife on NPS land.

Sen. Murkowski: "For too long, sportsmen's access to our federal lands has been restricted without reason or transparency. Our bipartisan Sportsmen's Act will ensure that our federal lands are open unless closed, provide new opportunities for more Americans to enjoy those lands, and require federal agencies to expand and enhance access in accordance with their missions. The bill we introduced is an important first step as we seek to have these priorities signed into law."

Sen. Heinrich: "The number one issue for sportsmen across the country is access. This widely supported, bipartisan bill will open more areas to hunting and fishing and grow America's thriving outdoor recreation economy. Hunting and fishing are a way of life for millions of Americans - especially in New Mexico where outdoor recreation as a whole is directly responsible for 68,000 jobs. Sportsmen have a deep connection to the outdoors and benefit from the recreation, wildlife, and water that our public lands provide and I remain deeply committed to conserving these treasured places for our children and all future generations to enjoy."

Sen. Risch: "With more than half-a-million sportsmen and women in Idaho alone, this legislation will ensure they can continue to access their favorite hunting or fishing spot. This year, I am confident we can get the Sportsmen's Act to the White House."

Sen. Manchin: "As an avid sportsman, I know firsthand that our hunting and fishing heritage is so important to who we are as West Virginians and as Americans. This bipartisan bill will boost West Virginia's economy while expanding hunting and fishing rights and allowing people a greater ability to enjoy the outdoors. I truly believe that people in the Mountain State and across this nation should be able to enjoy hunting and recreational shooting and have the ability to go out and enjoy the outdoors. We should protect these traditions that help define who we are and I'm proud to join my colleagues to introduce this important piece of legislation."

Plurality of Americans think Trump is failing
By Jennifer Rubin March 31 at 12:30 PM
Trump touts business optimism 'like never before' under his administration Play Video2:48

President Trump is flunking out. That’s what a substantial plurality of Americans say, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll:

After more than two months in office, America’s new president, Republican Donald Trump, got a grade of F from 1 in 3 voters, according to a new McClatchy-Marist Poll.

By contrast, the same number graded predecessor Democrat Barack Obama’s performance a B as he approached his 100th day in office. . . .

Only 38 percent of registered voters said they approved of the job Trump is doing as president, compared with 51 percent who disapproved. That’s down 3 percentage points since mid-February, and is considerably lower than other presidents at comparable times in their presidencies.

Independents approve of the job Trump is doing by 34-52 percent, while Democrats approve by 9-84 percent. Republicans approve by 79-10 percent, which are strong numbers, though they have gone down 3 points since February.

When you get down to the 30s in approval ratings, you essentially have only the support of people who will never, ever abandon the party/president no matter what the facts or circumstances are (e.g. Sean Hannity).

What is striking is how personal and visceral is the distaste for Trump. (“Nearly 6 in 10 voters —59 percent — said Trump’s conduct as president embarrassed them, according to the poll. Only 31 percent said his conduct made them proud, while 9 percent were unsure. Even more — 70 percent, including 45 percent of Republicans and three-quarters of independents — found Trump’s regular use of Twitter reckless and distracting. Only 19 percent said it was effective and informative, while 11 percent were unsure.”) For someone who won accusing others of being liars or criminals, Trump ironically has managed to convince 60 percent of voters not to “trust Trump and his administration to deliver accurate and factual information to the public, either at all or not very much.” Perhaps most damaging to Trump and his message, voters think the populist candidate has become a plutocratic president. (“57 percent thought his policies have most favored people who are upper-income, while 26 percent thought they have favored middle-income. Only 4 percent thought they have favored lower-income.”)

Note that this poll was completed before the recent revelation that White House aides effectively laundered classified information to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) in an attempt to defend Trump’s assertion that he was “wiretapped” and also before former national security adviser Michael T. Flynn publicly started pleading for immunity.

The ripple effects of Trump’s disastrous start may include:

Republicans in Congress will become even less willing to work with him, especially when it conflicts with constituents’ views. Soon, it will be every incumbent for himself or herself.
Primary challengers may crop up on the GOP side, looking to take out underperforming Trump apologists. What, for example, have Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), Dean Heller (R-Nev.), etc. done for their home states or the country other than back a failing president? (By contrast, more independent-minded GOP senators, including Arizona’s Jeff Flake or Tennessee’s Bob Corker, may have an easier time holding onto their seats in 2018.)
Red-state Democrats see no downside to protecting their left flank and continuing to oppose Trump on health care, taxes, etc. (We already see how many red-state Democrats are willing to filibuster Judge Neil Gorsuch.)
Democrats will seek to nationalize the 2018 race and tie every Republican to Trump.
Enthusiasm, fundraising and recruitment will improve for Democrats and suffer for Republicans.
If 2018 does turn into a disaster (and Trump is still in office), look for GOP presidential primary challengers or third-party conservatives to pop up.
A normal president would take failure to heart, shake up his staff and revamp his approach. But Trump, few will doubt, is not a normal president.

Protect Our Oceans. Protect Our Health. Protect Our EPA & NOAA.
The White House recently proposed debilitating budget and workforce cuts for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) starting this October when the 2018 fiscal year begins.
Every department seems to be affected; from environmental justice programs and science education, to research and monitoring.
In the new administration’s plan, many critical ocean grants, programs, and services will be completely eliminated unless our representatives and legislators vote against the cuts in Congress.
This comes at a critical time when America’s coastal infrastructure is failing in the face of intensifying storms and rising seas associated with climate change. We should be doubling down on efforts to prepare and defend our coastlines. We should be empowering scientists, researchers, and youth in America to become stewards for our ocean and environment. We should be investing our hard-earned tax dollars into the next generation of ocean innovation.
Instead, the proposals drastically reduce fundamental resources to prepare and respond to environmental emergencies.
The White House’s plan includes slashing the EPA budget by 31 percent — to the tune of $2.6 billion — and reducing staff by more than 3,200 people
The EPA is already operating on a lean budget – federal funding has been decreased by over $2 billion since 2010. Nearly three-quarters of the EPA’s annual budget goes toward funding grants for states, tribes, and contractors. These grants aid crucial environmental cleanup, monitoring, and preparedness efforts.
Commonly known for its weather forecasting services, NOAA also leads the nation on climate monitoring, fisheries, and ocean services. NOAA’s annual budget is $5.6 billion, a small fraction of the overall federal budget. The administration proposed a stiff 17% cut to NOAA’s overall budget. And, a 22% reduction in funding for NOAA’s National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service, which creates and operates weather satellites. This program also houses the National Centers for Environmental Information – an essential environmental science research center and repository of climate data.
Additionally, climate protection programs would suffer a nearly 70% cut, which would thwart efforts to prepare for sea level rise, adapt to hotter urban areas, and buffer our communities for increased storm intensity and flooding.
This is particularly important as previous worst case scenario projections for sea level rise in Southern California – 5.5 feet by 2100 – are now being revised to predict even more extreme impacts as ice sheets at our planet’s poles are melting faster than expected.
Beach tourism and the coast recreation economy are valued at close to $90 billion, so EPA’s investment of $10 million annually in beach water quality monitoring makes fiscal and public health sense to ensure that beachgoers are healthy and safe. However, the Beach Grant Program would suffer complete elimination. This vital program supports weekly water quality sampling at beaches across the country, and, helps to sustain thriving marine life and public awareness of pollution for the 90 million people visiting our nation’s beaches annually.
Environmental education through the EPA would be cut by over 90% - a disservice to preparing and educating our youth, who are the future stewards of our nation. And, communities who are already the most under-served would be disproportionately impacted by the planned 78% cuts to environmental justice programs.
Funding would be completely zeroed out for several smaller programs, including coastal management, estuary reserves, and Sea Grant – a well-leveraged scientific research partnership with universities throughout the nation.
Removing the Sea Grant program would cut funding for important fisheries, wetlands, wildlife, and public health research at 33 universities across the country – this is hands-on and applied research that informs management and protection of our economically and environmentally beneficial coastal and ocean resources.
The new administration’s proposals would cripple our efforts to safeguard marine habitats, threatened animals, and coastal resilience – placing entire communities and ecosystems at a further disadvantage.
The White House has said it is committed to promoting clean water and clean air, but these proposed actions demonstrate otherwise. It seems virtually impossible to maintain basic environmental and public health protections, given such deep cuts and job losses.
Please help Heal the Bay and many other trusted environmental groups nationwide in our effort to keep the EPA and NOAA from being disabled.
Tell your Congressional Representatives and Legislators that funding for the EPA and NOAA is important to you, your family, your business, and community.

Story highlights
The dilemma: Give conservatives too much of what they want, and risk losing the moderates
Specific details of a deal have still not emerged
Bill won't be voted on Thursday as long planned
Washington (CNN)White House officials and House Speaker Paul Ryan told Republicans in a closed-door meeting Thursday that they are finished with negotiations on their health care bill and President Donald Trump wants a vote Friday.

The dramatic scene followed 24 hours of tense negotiations and hushed meetings with the conservative House Freedom Caucus and others that failed to produce a closing deal. GOP leaders had already put off their plan to vote to repeal and replace Obamacare Thursday.
Trump had previously told Republicans they could lose their seats if they don't repeal the Affordable Care Act. Now, the White House is saying if they don't pass the bill Friday, they may be "stuck with Obamacare," according to a source inside the meeting.
The idea to end negotiations came from the White House, said a person with direct knowledge. Leadership and top White House aides spent the late afternoon "trying to grind them down," the source said, referring to the Freedom Caucus.
Which Republicans are opposing the Obamacare repeal bill?
Which Republicans are opposing the Obamacare repeal bill?
The vote is expected Friday afternoon, said Rep. Chris Collins, R-New York.
What's inside the Republican health care bill?
Republicans can't lose more than 21 of their caucus and still pass the bill, since no Democrats are expected to support it. According to CNN's ongoing whip count, 26 House Republicans have said they will vote against the bill, and four more have indicated they are likely to oppose it.
The struggle to repeal Obamacare has highlighted both Trump's and Ryan's struggles to reconcile their own party's deep and glaring internal divisions.
Both men have been furiously lobbying lawmakers to get behind the legislation, especially the Freedom Caucus, the group of conservatives that has tried to push the bill to the right but whose proposals have alienated moderate Republicans.
Meanwhile, the Congressional Budget Office came out with more bad news. Changes Republicans made earlier this week to the bill will actually only decrease federal deficits by $150 billion over 10 years, while the original measure would have lowered deficits by $337 billion.
The measure still would leave 24 million fewer people insured by 2026 than under Obamacare, CBO said.
After meeting directly with Trump at the White House Thursday, Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows said there were "30 to 40" votes against the bill.
"We have not gotten enough of our members to get to yes at this point," Meadows said. "We are certainly trying to get to yes."
Meadows also called the long-standing plan to vote on Thursday -- the seven-year anniversary of President Barack Obama signing the Affordable Care Act -- an "artificial deadline."
GOP health care bill: Inside a district that could make or break the vote
GOP health care bill: Inside a district that could make or break the vote
Republican leadership aides threw up their hands, saying it was now up to the Freedom Caucus take it or leave it.
"This is the final offer," chief deputy whip Patrick McHenry said. "We have a package, they have an offer, and they can accept or reject it."
A senior administration official described the meeting with one word: "Intense."
There was no clear movement, so in private conversations, even as the meetings were ongoing, the White House proposed this course of action. Leadership discussed it and agreed in short order. "There's nothing more we want to -- or really can -- give them," the source said.
Moderates are unhappy
The challenge for leaders as they count their votes is daunting: Give conservatives too much of what they want and risk losing the moderates, but keep the moderates on board and conservatives could walk.
On Wednesday and Thursday, non-Freedom Caucus Republicans began to turn their backs on the bill, saying it was not a plan they could back on behalf of their constituents.
The moderate Tuesday Group trekked to the White House Thursday afternoon after intense deliberations of their own and a meeting with Ryan. The group had seven boxes of pizza, as well as Doritos and Baked Lays, delivered to a room in the Capitol earlier in the day.
Trump is now experiencing firsthand what it is like to work with the Freedom Caucus, a top GOP source said -- that they can be deeply frustrating because they don't really want to get to yes and keep changing their demands.
Alabama GOP Rep. Bradley Byrne, emerging from a meeting with top House leaders, blasted the House GOP leadership's move to continue talks with the hard right in the Freedom Caucus while leaving the bulk of other members in the dark.
"I think the window for making decisions is rapidly closing. We need a vote or go home," said Byrne, a member of a large group of fiscal conservatives, the Republican Study Committee.
A key element of the negotiations between the Freedom Caucus and the White House revolves around the so-called "essential health benefits." The White House is working to possibly include the repeal of Obamacare requirements that certain benefits -- like mental health coverage, drug addiction coverage and maternity care -- be required in insurance plans.
"A lot of people don't realize what the implications of that are," one lawmaker member said Wednesday night of stripping out Essential Health Benefits. "So we're gonna railroad this thing through and there's going to be even more people pissed off -- our constituents, stakeholders.
What's in the bill
The GOP health care bill, introduced earlier this month, would roll back many of the Obamacare taxes and eradicate the individual mandate. Instead of the subsidies available under Obamacare, officially known as the Affordable Care Act, the GOP plan provides Americans with refundable tax credits to purchase health insurance.
The bill also significantly restructures Medicaid and allows states to require able-bodied adults to work if they want to be eligible for the program. After 2020, states will no longer be able to expand Medicaid like they could under Obamacare and states that haven't expanded the program at all are barred from doing so.
However, the GOP bill still includes some of the most popular pieces of Obamacare, including letting children stay on their parents' insurance plans until the age of 26 and including protections for people with pre-existing conditions, though insurers would be allowed to charge higher premiums to individuals whose coverage has lapsed.
The non-partisan CBO estimated that 24 million fewer Americans would be covered under this bill than under Obamacare by 2026 if the bill is becomes law in its current form.
This story will continue to be updated as developments warrant.

This sucks
Siting in rural markets may become easier with the introduction of the “Highway Rights-of-Way Permitting Efficiency Act of 2017” into the U.S. Senate. Sponsored by Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), S. 604 would allow certain state permitting authorities to encourage expansion of broadband service to rural communities.

The measure introduced last Friday afternoon would grant an exclusion from federal environmental assessments and impact statements to any broadband project within an operational right-of-way. The bill, co-sponsored by Sens. Steve Daines (R–MT) and Deb Fischer (R–NE), would allow state governments to enter into an agreement with federal agencies to share all or a portion of the responsibilities of reviewing broadband projects within a federal right-of-way, according to WTA– Advocates for Rural Broadband.

NTCA–The Rural Broadband Association, supports the measure, too. NTCA Chief Executive Officer Shirley Bloomfield said: “Government at all levels should work collaboratively to expedite placement of infrastructure, and NTCA hopes this bill will help move us toward a more streamlined and harmonized set of permitting processes
