Great-Lakes-Migratory-Birds | The Nature Conservancy

Birds are a priceless part of our heritage. Our feathered friends are not only a delight to observe, classify and photograph, but they also serve as bellwethers of our natural and cultural health. Millions of birds migrate through the Great Lakes every year, using wetlands, forests, shoreline and more than 32,000 islands as stopover sites. But these habitats and others are under increasing pressure from climate change, habitat loss and other stressors. We have never seen a more urgent time than now to support migratory birds — for the protection of their future, as well as our own.

‘The People’s Budget’: Analysis of the Congressional Progressive Caucus budget for fiscal year 2018 | Economic Policy Institute

For the seventh year in a row, the Economic Policy Institute Policy Center (EPIPC) has provided assistance to the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) in analyzing and scoring the specific policy proposals in its alternative budget and in modeling its cumulative impact on the federal budget over the next decade. EPIPC finds that The People’s Budget would have significant positive impacts, including improving the economic well-being of low- and middle-income families, making necessary public investments, strengthening  the social safety net, and increasing tax progressivity and adequacy while reducing the deficit in the medium term.
