Lex Blood has an op-ed in the Hungry Horse News this week praising the progress in pushing the North Fork Watershed Protection Act towards passage . . .
After four decades of collaborative effort, protection of the watershed of the North Fork of the Flathead River from mineral or energy development is almost a reality.
On June 5, 2013, Congressman Steve Daines introduced the North Fork Watershed Protection Act of 2013 to our nation’s House of Representatives and made a commitment to “lead the charge” to pass the bill.
“It’s important that we work together to protect these valuable resources so that future generations can enjoy them for years to come,” he said. “I’m glad to be part of this important bi-partisan effort.”
