The following appeared on the National Wildlife Federation’s blog this week in support of the Conservation Coalition of Oklahoma’s opposition to State Question 777. We’re proud to be an affiliate of the NWF and will continue to work hard to conserve our land, our water, our wildlife and our rights.

As a conservation organization, the National Wildlife Federation considers “bad” legislation to be that which is harmful or has the potential to be harmful to wildlife or the environment.
