All are welcome
Event Description: 

Join us at this public hearing before the Environment Committee to hear a proposed Constitutional Amendment bill (S.J. 5) amongst other topics.  This is your opportunity to offer testimony that will ensure this bill results in better protection of your State Parks, Forests, Wildlife Management Areas, and State-owned agricultural lands.

Although we are appreciative that this critical issue will have a public hearing, S.J. 5 needs to be improved to provide the best protection for your public lands. 

Follow this link to a Fact Sheet that provides:

  • talking points on the issue that you can use in your testimony;
  • specific recommendations to improve S.J. 5;
  • instructions on how to submit your testimony to the Environment Committee; and 
  • links to additional information on this important topic.

Thank you for your support of your public lands, and thank you for supporting CFPA!
