21 Senators call on the Biden administration to stop working on 30x30
Many lawmakers are calling on the Biden administration to stop working on the 30x30 Initiative.
Twenty-one Senate Republicans say that an environmental impact statement and the legal authority behind the effort should be disclosed first. They say that the initiative is moving forward outside the scope of the public, despite the promise of transparency and consultation.
President Biden is committed to trying to conserve 30 percent of U.S. land by 2030 to mitigate climate change.
