A proposal to shift $1.3-Billion dollars in federal environmental funds to the states would provide Missouri $20-Million dollars more for its conservation efforts. Missouri U.S. Senator Roy Blunt co-sponsors the bipartisan measure that would funnel federal environmental fines to states, territories, and tribes. Missouri Conservation Department Director Sara Parker Pauley says $20-Million dollars would be a game-changer for the state. . .



Joining Pauley in a St. Joseph news conference along the Missouri River was Missouri Western State University biology professor Mark Mills who says environmental projects ultimately benefit people. . .



The money would be distributed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
