SIGNED – SB 1290 – ConserveVirginia
ConserveVirginia program; established.
We here at the Alliance encourage the spirit of the ConserveVirginia program but think it needs work before it is officially established. ConserveVirginia uses a data-driven process to identify lands that have high conservation value (such as prime soils for farming, potential for restoration or protection of clean streams and scenic value) so that the state may prioritize conservation investments. To best protect the Shenandoah Valley’s rich agriculture economy, healthy waterways and renowned scenery, we believe the model needs improvement before it is made official through legislation.
