"The law takes billions in oil and gas royalties and puts them towards conservation projects like one proposed and moan. Oh, that will make it easier for the public to access popular recreation lands. Is also some $9 billion, going toward a staggering backlog of fixes of national parks. Mono County abuts Yosemite, which is in need of some 500 million alone. There hasn't been anything like this since Teddy Roosevelt I suspect at the bill signing President Trump hailed the legislation that he said would preserve America's natural wonders. Democrats like Senator Martin Heinrich of New Mexico were mostly excluded from that ceremony in August. Original co sponsor of the bill, Heinrich says Trump's sudden interest in conservation looked like pure politics. They had a big press conference at the White House. They made sure that their imperils senators were part of that press conference. The law makes permanent the popular Land and Water Conservation fund, which previous trump budgets had all but zeroed out, Heinrich says. The reality is this administration was never wholeheartedly behind this legislation. They saw this as an opportunity in an important election year. One of the acts lead sponsors, Republican Cory Gardner of Colorado lost his reelection bid and around Election Day the administration missed a key congressional deadline to submit its list of projects to get funded. And when the list did come out, it was significantly pared down. Jennifer Crites was surprised to learn that Mona Counties project had been removed. I think it sends a poor impression right off the start that already we're going to cut funding from your region from your public lands. I think it zis the bad taste that that's how we're going to start here. Conservationists are also fuming over a secretarial order tacked onto the act last month. Gives governors veto power over any federal public lands acquisition. The Trump Administration says this is about being better neighbors not stymieing new federal public land acquisitions. We really want to make sure that the investment that we're making on the federal side compliment with the states are doing Margaret ever Sin is the administration's point person for implementing the act. She's also currently the acting Park Service director. The fourth temporary leader of the agency under Trump. It has been a focus of this administration to make sure that we really careful about investing every single dollar of this act, so when we look back, we should be really proud of those investments. But this is the end of the Trump administration. And it's not clear whether all this controversy for now is moot. Tracy Stone Manning is with the National Wildlife Federation. It just adds to the list of the things that the new administration is going to have to fix. Conservationists. Sorority lobbying President elect Biden undo much of what's already been implemented to the landmark conservation law. Kirk Siegler. NPR NEWS Boise It's morning edition from NPR News.

"Completed legislature and legislation on guns. United States Senator Martin Heinrich took to the floor of the Senate today to slam Mitch McConnell and they're fake scam. Vote on the green new deal and Martin Heinrich Colleen for direct action on climate change. Here is Senator Heinrich on the floor of the Senate today that delay all. Enough with a straw, man. Arguments for my Republican colleagues about hamburgers and shark NATO. Is that really the best they can do climate change is real at our pollution is causing. It's devastating impacts. Those are just facts as an engineer I'm certain that our capacity to confront this challenge rests heavily on our ability to make policy that's actually driven by fax by data. And by the best available science that science provides us with clear and indisputable evidence that the destructive wildfires and hurricanes and flooding that we have seen are directly linked to human caused climate change. And we are running out of time. It's pastime for us to start implementing real solutions to eliminate our carbon pollution and mitigate the most devastating impacts of climate change. And we must create a managed. Transition to an economy that is run on one hundred percent clean energy. I would encourage us to look to what just happened in my home state of New Mexico to see that. This is possible. It's not pie in the sky for more than a century. New Mexico has been a major part of our carbon based economy from coal to oil to gas. But just last week. Our new governor.

"John. McCain one of his colleagues joins us now from Washington, DC and that would be United States Senator Martin Heinrich. Senator good. Afternoon thank you for your time. Today it's a pleasure to be with. You all. Right we've had on, colleague, Tom, udall former, colleague, Jeff Bingaman former Senator Jeff. Bingaman they've given us kind of their. Thoughts Jeff was a colleague of John McCain for twenty six years of. Thinner udall talked about John McCain's relationship to the udall family to mow into, steward of, course now to to Tom your thoughts about the past in your relationship with John. McCain, well obviously I didn't get to serve with him for for those Really extended. Periods of time but I think I was really lucky to get to serve, with him, during the entire tenure of his chairmanship of the Armed Services Committee and I think. In, many ways that was a position that he absolutely relished he At a time when so many things are dysfunctional back here we've been able to. Produce the defense authorization Bill out of that committee under his leadership each? And every year and he was just incredibly honored to. Do that work and so I was lucky enough to get, to work with them for the better part. Of four years those committee you were appointed to when you first elected to the Senate. Not when I was first elected the first two years I was? Not able to secure a position on that committee but after two years I was able to and so that was my probably my. Single biggest opportunity to interact directly with John Heinrich what can you learn from a from a Senator with the experience not just in the. In government but experienced in life in the military experience in how to comport. Oneself Learn maybe the military academy and being in a family? Like John McCain's what could you, learn from him what kind of things did you pick up from him Well I think one of the things that was uniquely suited for, him and why he was so successful as chair and was able to take on things like acquisition reform where you're really fighting the system is that his bone a few days of service and sacrifice and allegiance to the men. And women in uniform was so strong that it allowed him to take on the places where the department of defense was not minding, the store if, you will and so we were able to put reforms in the. Defense authorization Bill that I think? Many other senators would not have been successful pushing through His presence on the military to sue me to the Karp services committee armed, services Senator, Armed Services. Committee his stature in the military veterans organizations military community when you when, you, look back on, on things that as you said wind maybe the DOD the Pentagon with non, minding the store when. He went back and he said we need stronger this we need. That we need more of. This or more of that we need to deploy here we need to stand up for these countries that are we're not looking after, his voice, was, often listened to not all the time but often oh I think his voice. Was always listened to. Had a Mench respect for him you didn't always agree and, when you, when you fought John McCain, auto policy issue it was, it could be real fireworks and it. Was never personal and that's the, way it should be it's that's changed back here sometimes but that's something all of us could learn from him how to throw down on the floor and and really have it out argue over a policy and Right, afterwards go up and you, know Pat, each other. On the back in and resume your friendship and he had that independence, the, whole maverick thing, was so much part of of who he was not just as brand he, often times you know. If he was on the opposite side of an issue as many. Of the folks in his. Own caucus he had no qualms about that we prohibited torture in large part because of his leadership you know he worked directly with, people like, Dianne, Feinstein and others of us who were concerned about that policy undermining our national. Security and because he. Was able to step up from that unique perspective of what, he went, through himself we were able, to get that done and, and I think people will remember those. Moments when he fought is own, party because he believed in waves fighting for especially the people who were on the other side of the arguments people like Dick Cheney that that's exactly right And he proved that again with the with the portable Care Act I mean. He was the, decisive vote, that night and I will never remember him or forget him walking onto the and giving the big thumbs, down and that was a huge. Moment for a lot of people's lives and their access. To healthcare, the labels of hawk and maybe not as important as it used to be but when people look at war or peace, military or you know using money other things Senator you now serve on the intelligence committee and when, we look at things that are necessary. Because there are regardless of how much we uphold the fact that we have to do this there are bad people out there who want to attack the United States the labels of of dove in hawk John McCain was a hawk He was but he was also somebody that you know you could work with on a, lot of issues and like I said I. I didn't always agree with John McCain there were a lot of times. We fought but it was he the way he served his country Hearkens back to, the, way this place used to work and. It used to work better and that's something, that all of us should be able to learn from Because it's not in the water back here I mean the reason, why things are as challenging as they are because there, aren't as many, pragmatists who are willing to figure out a path forward and and for the most, part John could always figure out a path. Forward certain Heinrich you became good good friends clip close friends and could work very closely with his colleague in Arizona. Jeff, flake who's decided not. To seek reelection and I'm sure Jeff flake is one of the people who is experiencing a really close personal loss with John McCain no I think that's right, and Jeff has been very eloquent in. The last few, days in, in talking about, what what John meant to him and the state of. Arizona and Jeff flake and I will always be close friends irrespective of our you know. Our political differences and that's kind of how it should be around here One of. The issues, that you share with Jeff flake or share with Tom udall or shared with John McCain is ethos of being a westerner and the ethos of open land and ethos of, shared issues of open land and borderland with people in, Arizona speak to, first of all what Senator udall brought up earlier about John McCain's commitment to climate, change legislation along with Joe Lieberman and also. Open lands well you know he he believed in science you know he he wasn't so doc Matic that he would. Choose, to ignore something as. Big as climate change and so you know the question for him was okay if we have a problem what is the conservative solution to that problem rather than, taking the dogmatic view of saying well. I'm going to, ignore that, because it's not, convenient within my worldview and you know fortunately folks I Him and Lindsey Graham and others were you know always seeking a, path forward on things like that and and what are the other places I really appreciated, his, leadership was on campaign finance reform and we've you know we've had. A supreme court, that's, thrown, aside Every meaningful. Effort, to to limit the impact of money in politics well John McCain was on the right side of that battle and you, know McCain Feingold was was a great achievement and unfortunately watered down by the impact of the courts Senator, parting thoughts and John McCain, oh I just think, it makes, you realize you're lucky to be alive every day. In your lucky to live in a? Country like the. One we have and he will be, deeply missed, by myself, and and all of my colleagues hopefully soon You can get together and you can come on we'll talk about your campaign look forward to it, there thank you very much thank you Richard Senator Martin Heinrich time out we'll be back seventeen minutes have, three o'clock.

Very refusing to form a coalition should they be believed that they care about putting, New Mexico for first. Of all horrible run on sense bad run on San Blair done Also stays at the incumbent Martin, Heinrich, is demonstrably bad. For the state of New Mexico But. That's what you would expect him to say libertarian running against a democrat for attorney general he will probably not get thirty percent of the vote I'd be shocked if he. Got thirty percent of the but now it's. Up to the libertarian that'd be governor goofball Gary Johnson And make rich to make peace they, can't.
