Larsen Praises Committee Passage of Bill to Protect Green Mountain Lookout

Jul 31, 2013 Issues: Environment

WASHINGTON—Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, issued the following statement today after the House Committee on Natural Resources approved the Green Mountain Lookout Heritage Protection Act.

“We are one big step closer to protecting the Green Mountain Lookout,” Larsen said. “The Green Mountain Lookout belongs in one place: on Green Mountain. I appreciate Chairman Hastings’ efforts to move this bill forward and I look forward to working with Rep. DelBene to pass this bill through the House soon.”

Larsen introduced the first version of the bill last year, and joined Rep. Suzan DelBene, WA-01, and Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell to reintroduce the bill this year.

A Senate subcommittee considered the companion bill earlier yesterday.
