Rep. Andy Hill co-recipient of "Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust" award
Congressman Dave Reichert will be visiting Snoqualmie Point Park to present State Senator Steve Litzow (R-Mercer Island), Joe Fain (R-Auburn) and Andy Hill (R-Redmond) with an award from the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust honoring their conservation leadership. Litzow, Hill and Fain are being recognized for reaching across the aisle during the 2011 session to continue funding for a critical wildlife conservation program - the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP). The WWRP was initially slated for elimination in the governor's budget.
“In the Pacific Northwest, we take special pride in our natural resources,” said Congressman Reichert. “I am impressed by the state senators’ efforts to save the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program and look forward to adding more allies to the ongoing mission to preserve our environment.”
