Strong for the Environment

Clean water and our public lands are critical to the well-being, quality of life and economic prosperity of our entire state.  That rings every bit as true here in our back yard of District 48.  As a citizen, business owner and sportsman I have always been proactive and strong on environmental issues.  That philosophy has carried through in my time as your state Senator.

Chuck pushed legislation that....

  • Established Pisgah View State Park...Buncombe county's first and only state park
  • Created funding for recreational water testing
  • Increased funding to the Clean Water Management Trust Fund and the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund
  • Created the Viable Utility Reserve to help rural communities repair failing water and sewer infrastructure
  • Supported increased funding for the fight to protect our mountain Hemlocks against the Wooly Adelgid
  • Created funding for petroleum leak remediation
