Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds

DES MOINES – Gov. Kim Reynolds and 14 other governors issued a joint letter urging President Biden to be more proactive in working with states on environmental conservation in response to an overreaching January 27 executive order that restricted the jurisdiction of states.

“We encourage your Administration to focus on better management of the lands the federal government already controls and to be more proactive in working with states. States are not simply additional stakeholders to consult in your policy development; states are essential partners and the leaders in developing innovative policies that already appropriately conserve lands, waters, and wildlife for the American people,” the governors stated in their message to the Biden Administration.

Executive Order 14008 calls on the Federal Government to develop a program to conserve at least 30 percent of the lands and waters in the United States by 2030. The governors joining today’s effort are concerned about any attempt to enlarge the federal estate or further restrict the use of public lands in their states.

Signatories to the letter include Governors Pete Ricketts (NE), Doug Ducey (AZ), Kim Reynolds (IA), Doug Burgum (ND), Bill Lee (TN), Kay Ivey (AL), Asa Hutchinson (AR), Tate Reeves (MS), Kevin Stitt (OK), Greg Abbott (TX), Mike Dunleavy (AK), Brad Little (ID), Greg Gianforte (MT), Kristi Noem (SD) and Spencer Cox (UT).

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation knowingly violated the Constitution to track down potential ‘racially motivated violent extremists.’ But the FBI didn’t conduct its unconstitutional dragnet following the January 6th Capitol riots, it actually started its probe in November — in the midst of a contested election.

    Fvck joe biden. This is over reach by big government and they clearly think they are smarter than we are. Democrats couldnt manage a pheasant habitat if we did it for them. The federal government can fvck right off trying to make our public lands their business. Wanna help a state manage their forests and public lands? Goneduxate california on controlled burns to prevent forest fires and maybe reroute some of the states waters back where they go instead of that cess pool la. Joe biden and the federal government can stick this bs right up their limp dick. Hope these governors do everything they can and get the feds the fvck out of our business.

        Ya dude. Government trying to rape our natural resources or at the very least mismanage them should make you angry too. But you probably care more about your video game console than you do about nature. Cuz you’re a useless sack of shit like so many other useless sacks of shit. This issue doesn’t matter enough to you, you can directly relate to the level of shittiness in you. You have zero understanding of the progress we have made in Turkey and pheasant numbers, you dont appreciate the time world and effort, you dont understand the essential role having healthy populations of wild animals plays in our local environment I’m sure you do not know the first thing about hunting or fishing and that’s fine but you should just sit in the corner and shut up when the adults talk.

      Well I do know for a fact from the previous administration that California does not vacuum their forests . Fire , big fire , really hot . And I also know Puerto Rico is surrounded by water , really big water.

        You’re being a dipshit on purpose? Vacuum their forests? It’s a natural part of forests to have fires, when yo u change the environment and reroute most of the water in a state you change the way that natural process works. Those forests need to be burned off occasionally to get rid of the dead wood and the scrubby brush that shades out the seedling of the big trees the forest consists of so they can grow and shade out the under brush and lower the necessity of having to burn the undergrowth and dead wood as often. It leads to healthier forests and better animal populations. I dont care about Puerto Rico’s I do not like Puerto ricans. They can drown.

    Sonvasically the anti gun, tree hugging idipt hippies who don’t understand how conservation works are trying to keep us from effectively managing our lands and animal populations? Joe Biden is a pos loser.

        Seriously? Making this about trump losing an election? That fracking comment was satire? I hope or you’re an idiot. This is an actually important issue and of course mason city retards dont take it seriously or understand why. It has nothing to do with race or smoking meth so I get that mason city residents feel out of their element and have to resort to bad attempts at humor or just parroting same anti trump brain rot they have been spewing for over 4 years. I supported neither candidate, that’s a choice, morons. Conservation is far more important than black lives or infrastructure. Its dark more 8nportsnt than biden negotiations with terrorist organizations like the taliban. Its alot more important than 90% of the lives in mason city to be honest. Can we take anything that matters seriously? I get that you’re a bunch of losers who spend all your time inside on drugs or drunk but lots of us use those public lands and dont want some idiotic child molesting rapist suffering dementia to have any involvement in the future of those lands. Has nothing to do with trump so probably just keep your autistic opinion for yourself.

        Biden didnt cheat. The committee of ventriloquist’s shoving their arms up his as the last few year’s where responsible for that. Joe’s a fvcking moron. He isnt capable of making moves at that level lol. Hes been an ineffective useless background noise, also happens to be a racist, rapist, child molester lame duck politician his entire career. Dont give him any credit. He can barely get through reading a speech outloud without losing his spot, train of thought and becoming visibly frustrated at the situation. His brain is dying. Hes demented. The ppl who propped him up are as evil as the people who voted for him. Its essentially elder abuse. Would you force your grandparent to take the most stressful job possible and then expect them to do it well? Most ppl wouldnt. People Joe’s age are not mentally acute starting to lose it and shouldn’t be driving no less running a country.

          Snowflake? That’s a term for leftist fanboys. By the way I’m neither on the left or the right because I have an IQ that reflects a functional and non retarded amount of cognitive function. I’d you pick a side you’re a halfwit and a loser. Its that simple. You enjoy being a pawn and you’re not smart. What fairy tale? Joe biden is suffering dementia, maybe you’re 12 and havent watched an elder family member go through this. It’s time to take the keys away from Joe. If you actually watch the person you think is such a good leader instead of simply parroting idiot sentiment you hear from your idiot friends and udiot media you’d easily identify that hes a man suffering. He loses his train of thought, he confuses words and people, he doesn’t know what the atf is called, he has said extremely racist things in public, he has done extremely creepy things toward children and women on public, he forced a woman to have sex with him in his office but the media buried her. He takes Chinese money, money from communist that oppress their people. Even without that. Hes suffering dementia and you can see it in every single speech he reads off the teleprompter, what fairy tale? Hes being manipulated and guided by other ppl. I love how liberals will shit on you and try to act like you’re wrong no matter what even when you specifically say you feel bad for the man because he is a victim of elder abuse, you ppl dont care about anything other than being “right” anytime any criticizes the Democrat party of joe Biden simply because you assume you’re attacking a “trumper” you’re simple minded and pathetic. Very venomous online and very mouthy. Probably the type that would run from this convoy in real life and then fb about how you narrowly escaped violent bigots who tried hurt your feelings with their racism and patriarchy. Open your eyes, idiot. Objectively joe biden is suffering dementia and he is not going to make it four years at the rate he is declining. This is about nm our country and our well being. Not your stupid little obsession with hating anyone that doesnt agree with every hippy dippy leftist attitude you have. You two party politics people are the problem with this country. You’re just as ignorant as the right, just as useless and just as much in the way if progress. Both sides are worthless idiotic losers.
