Jan Brewer on Environment

 


Natural Resources Review Council: AZ knows BEST, not Feds

When it comes to management of our precious natural resources, I'd like Arizona to set its own course as much as possible. Today, I've issued an Executive Order establishing the Arizona Natural Resources Review Council. This Council is tasked with creating a plan to help protect and maintain the values of multiple use, sustained yield, public access and economic development on federal lands. I am calling on local governments and the private sector to join with the State to meet this long term vision.

More than 30 million acres across our state are ALREADY under federal control. The Council's plan will be one way we can protect Arizona's interests on federal lands. Arizona knows BEST how to manage her own land and natural resources.

Endangered Species Act causes damage to environment

The irony is that much of the land along the US side of the Arizona boarder is protected by the federal government for environmental reasons. Federal laws like the Endangered Species Act and the National Environmental Policy Act restrict access. To enter, the Border Patrol has to wait and get special permission. Sometimes four months pass before permission is granted. In the twisted world of illegal immigration, environmentally protected lands suffer more damage than unprotected ones.

Negotiated to put thousands of acres into county parks

During her chairmanship at Maricopa County, Brewer negotiated large land conservation deals that added thousands of acres of pristine land into county parks and away from development, and improved and expanded the Maricopa Medical Center's Burn Unit which stands today as one of the pre-eminent health care facilities in the nation.

Brewer signed Letter from Governors in US and Canada to Pres. Obama

Dear Mr. President,

We respectfully urge you to move forward on the Keystone XL Pipeline project. The energy relationship between the US and Canada is vital to the future of both our countries.

We consider the Keystone XL Pipeline fundamentally important to the future economic prosperity of both the US and Canada.
