Methow Headwaters Campaign Nears Finish Line!
With leadership from Representative Dan Newhouse and overwhelming bi-partisan support, the Methow Headwaters Protection Act introduced by Senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday afternoon (February 26th) as part of S. 47 The Natural Resources Management Act.
As we await the President’s signature on the Bill over the next 10 days, we encourage all who are celebrating this historic milestone to join us in thanking our federal elected officials and their dedicated staff teams who have made this possible.
