State Lands Conveyance Alert! Your action is needed NOW!

The 2015 Legislative Session ends TODAY!

Good News:
The good news is that the two sections of the Conveyance Act that would have allowed private sand and gravel extraction companies to gain access across the Quinebaug Wildlife Management Area in eastern Connecticut have been removed.

Bad News:
The bad news is that there is a last minute effort to include these controversial sand and gravel conveyances in various budget bills. This could happen without your immediate action.

House Speaker Brendan Sharkey -   or  800-842-1902
Senator Mae Flexer -  or 800-842-1420
Rep. Christine Rosati -  or 800-842-8267
Rep. Doug Dubitsky  -  or 800-842-1423

The Message:

Ask that any provisions that would allow sand and gravel companies to build private access roads across the Quinebaug Wildlife Management Area be removed from the budget. 

Thank you for taking action!

With best regards,


Amy B. Paterson, Executive Director

Connecticut Land Conservation Council
