North Carolina's diverse natural resources are central to the state's economy and provide excellent opportunities to hunt, fish and hike. Senator Hagan loves to explore North Carolina's great outdoors with her family and believes that protecting our natural environment is essential to supporting our state's economy.
While serving in the State Senate, Senator Hagan cosponsored North Carolina's Clean Smokestacks Act - which limits smog and acid rain pollution from coal-fired power plants - and supported efforts to conserve clean water resources throughout the state.
As a U.S. Senator, Senator Hagan continues to push for expanded investments in North Carolina’s public lands, from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the West to Cape Hatteras National Seashore on the coast. In commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Blue Ridge Parkway, she introduced bipartisan legislation to preserve 50,000 acres of land surrounding the historic roadway.
She also cosponsored a landmark bipartisan bill that ensures full funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund and preserves 500,000 acres of national wildlife refuges in northeastern North Carolina and 2.4 million acres of national forests in the Southern Appalachians.
As Co-Chair of the bipartisan Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus, Senator Hagan is committed to protecting North Carolina’s rich outdoor heritage and supporting the 1.4 million sportsmen and women who call North Carolina home and contribute more than $7.5 billion to the state’s economy every year.
Senator Hagan will continue working to find commonsense solutions that will protect our environment, preserve sensitive ecosystems and strengthen the North Carolina economy. To reduce our dependence on foreign oil, Senator Hagan believes we must invest in clean energy technologies that will also create high-paying jobs that cannot be sent overseas.
