WetlandThe bill to enhance the already successful North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) is halfway to becoming law as the House of Representatives unanimously approved the measure, sending it on to the Senate. The bill would increase the availability of funds to match federal grants to restore habitat in Canada.

Congressman Rob Wittman (Va.), the sponsor of the bill (H.R. 3433), encouraged his colleagues to pass the legislation.

"Broad support exists for amending this legislation, and given the overwhelming interest in protecting wildlife habitats, we shouldn't waste another moment or dime in failure to act on this legislation," said Wittman.
