OPPOSE H.R. 200

I am writing to urge you to vote NO on H.R. 200. You may be hearing from supporters of H.R. 200 that all the scientists, commercial and recreational fishermen, chefs, and citizens around the country who oppose H.R. 200 are somehow “misinformed.” However,

municipal water users, farmers, tribes, fishermen, and environmental and recreational interests.

risks to the missions of the Department. This came despite language the President signed into law (in the FY18 NDAA) confirming that climate change is a direct threat to our national security. Altering these reports, many of which have been mandated by Congress,
