PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE 
SCORECARD

"As president, my administration will work with Congress to pass legislation to permanently protect critical watersheds and natural areas that are vital to recreation - and tourism-based economies, local communities, and wildlife, including the Boundary Waters."

“It is critical that we understand the broader impacts of extractive industries on surrounding environments, economies, and communities.”

“I am deeply committed to protecting invaluable public lands and wilderness areas. These resources belong to all Americans, yet the current administration is trying to open up many such areas to potentially harmful projects. My Administration will reverse that and preserve these lands for future generations.”
