Cotto: Protecting forests and waterways is key to our national future. Can this be accomplished through center-right public policy?
Sisson: Absolutely. Conservation of public lands and waters enjoys broad bi-partisan support. This issue enjoys very strong grassroots support with a coalition that includes progressive environmentalists, the tourism industry, sportsmen, ranchers, and faith-based voters. Conserving land and water is one of the safest votes a member of Congress will ever cast.
