The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness is a national treasure. It is up to us to do everything we can to protect it for future generations. #SaveThisWilderness #BWCA

Finally, the FY21 State & Foreign Operations bill includes my language ensuring the U.S. is able to uphold our end of the 1909 Boundary Waters Treaty with Canada by providing $1M for the International Joint Commission to monitor & evaluate pollution in our shared boundary waters.

I also secured language in the FY 21 Agriculture-Rural Development-FDA bill requiring the USDA/USFS to release the results of a taxpayer-funded study meant to determine the environmental impacts of sulfide-ore copper mining on the Rainy River Watershed. #ShareTheReport https://t.co/5xpb9zHTGj

The FY 21 Interior-Environment bill passed the Appropriations Committee & now moves to the full House for approval. This bill prohibits funds from being used to review/approve the Twin Metals mine plan in the Rainy River Watershed. #BWCA My statement: https://t.co/2WqEUqMmtP

With so much demand for more diverse stories, perspectives, and opportunities to learn, it’s fantastic to see a young Saint Paul leader stepping in and working to fill this gap. The Fourth District will benefit from having a Black-owned bookstore! https://t.co/I4wlt2KpTW

Thank you @BettyMcCollum04 for standing with 70% of Minnesotans who want to see the Boundary Waters protected. You are a real leader and we are so thankful for your dedication and commitment! https://t.co/5RbO6SmdSV

.@BettyMcCollum04: "For 3 years they [the GOP] have told us they will raise $1 billion [via Arctic Refuge oil leases]. This bill simply says okay, raise the $1 billion. How is that objectionable?” It isn't. Thank you @AppropsDems for holding them accountable. #ProtectTheArctic https://t.co/a7p4POGqaJ

NEW: The House Appropriations Committee has approved its FY2021 Interior-Environment funding bill, sending the legislation to the House for further consideration. Read more about the bill: https://t.co/a4haATLsSt

I shaped this bill with input from advocates, agencies, state & local stakeholders, tribes, fellow Members of Congress, & many others. Thank you all for your shared commitment to our environment & our communities.

In this bill, I’ve included a measure that prohibits any funds from being used to review or approve a mine plan in the Rainy River Watershed. Some places are simply too precious to mine – we shouldn’t put the Boundary Waters at risk. #SaveThisWilderness #BWCA https://t.co/EPZ9h0yVa4

The $36.76 billion FY21 Interior-Environment bill, led by @BettyMcCollum04, will secure increased investments in wildlife conservation, ecological preservation, and protecting our public lands & pristine landscapes. Thank you Representative McCollum for your leadership! https://t.co/DtTqSl8h3y

Watch live as the Appropriations Committee marks up our FY21 $36.76B Interior-Environment funding bill, which increases funding for clean air & clean water, addresses climate change, protects wildlife & public lands, funds the arts & humanities, & more: https://t.co/MtKwnUigXj https://t.co/lpureqT3vn

Happy to have worked with MN’s own Chair @BettyMcCollum04 as she wrote the FY 21 Interior-Environment bill to invest in clean water, clean air, and more! https://t.co/gUrm8um0Id

As we collectively confront our nation’s legacy of racial injustice, this bill is taking action to remove Confederate symbols from our national parks. The oppression of Black Americans should not be condoned on our public lands, & all should feel welcome in our collective spaces. https://t.co/PEg8O23cLn

This bill also rejects the Trump admin’s proposed elimination of the @ForestService International Program, increasing funding for it & for @USFWSIntl. This will help combat poaching & wildlife trafficking & help reduce global transmission of zoonotic diseases like #COVID19.

While there is much more work to do, this bill is another step towards upholding the federal government’s trust & treaty responsibilities to Native American communities, with increased funding for BIA, BIE, & IHS. https://t.co/9tRhzzj2Bo

This bill also rejects the Trump admin’s proposal to eliminate funding for @NEAarts & @NEHgov and instead invests $170 million for each. The arts and humanities enrich lives and are critical drivers of MN’s culture and economy. https://t.co/eIh2qy1317

WATCH: Chair @BettyMcCollum04’s impassioned opening statement at the full committee markup of the FY21 Interior-Environment appropriations bill: “I am committed to doing everything I can to help our country confront and heal its legacy of racial injustice.” https://t.co/CvGjmZXzuQ

Our bill provides an increase of $45 million to EPA’s Geographic Programs, which help with restoration of the Great Lakes & other nationally significant bodies of water. #GLRI is vital for MN’s economy, outdoor recreation, food supply, & more. https://t.co/fG1g07hpRn

This bill also prioritizes the health & safety of our communities by increasing funding for clean air & water programs. Especially during this global respiratory pandemic, everyone deserves clean air to breathe & safe water to drink. https://t.co/0AHF5GGLHT
