Carole King and James Taylor Join Representatives Christopher Shays (R-CT) & Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) to Reintroduce Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act in 108th Congress

WASHINGTON DC - Christopher Shays (R-CT) and Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), were joined by singer/songwriter/activists Carole King and James Taylor to reintroduce the Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act (NREPA) on March 5, 2003. For the first time in its 12-year history, the bill is rolling out with over 100 congressional cosponsors. King has been an advocate for NREPA for the past 12 years.

NREPA will save taxpayers over $245 million in the next ten years and will create 2300 new jobs, which has caught the eye of both Republicans and Democrats. NREPA will protect the bioregion known as the Wild Rockies, spanning five states: Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. This region is home to bison, elk, and grizzly bears that are losing land to roam on due to the subsidizing of logging companies. You can make a difference. Get involved in saving your environment.
