BOWIE, MD -- Today, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) received the endorsement of the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) Action Fund. One of the nation's premier environmental protection advocacy groups, NWF Action Fund supports candidates committed to its mission of conservation, protection of endangered species and ecosystems, and environmental education. 
"At a time when our efforts to preserve and protect our planet could not be more critical, I am proud of this endorsement by the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund," said Congressman Hoyer.  "Over the years, I've worked alongside NWF to ensure Maryland's wildlife and environment are left stronger for the next generation. Our shared interest in issues such as a cleaner Chesapeake Bay watershed, and protecting our precious wildlife ecosystems are what continue to make us great partners. In Congress I've helped lead efforts to address the climate crisis, and am especially proud of the legislation I introduced this year, the AMAZON21 Act, to combat deforestation and reduce carbon emissions around the globe. Alongside outstanding advocacy groups like NWF Action Fund, I will continue to be a fighter in Congress for Maryland's natural habitats and a cleaner, healthier Fifth District."
