House Committee Approves Two Pro-Refuge System Bills

The Examiner reports that the House Committee on Natural Resources recently passed H.R. 1300, which would reauthorize volunteer programs and community partnerships for national wildlife refuges through 2017, and H.R. 1384 – the Wildlife Refuge System Conservation Semipostal Stamp Act of 2013 – which would raise money to address the maintenance backlog and operational shortfall of the Refuge System.

Both bills now go to the full House for a vote.
