LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts signed an Executive Order pushing back on President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.’s 30 x 30 plan.  The 30 x 30 plan aims to conserve or permanently protect in its natural state 30 percent of the nation’s land and water by 2030.

 

Among other things, the “Stop 30 x 30” Executive Order directs state agencies to restrict state support for permanent conservation easements, highlights local governments opposing 30 x 30, and sets up trainings to help local governments push back on 30 x 30.
