Maloney last month introduced the Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act (NREPA), which would "give permanent wilderness protection to 23 million acres of America's premier roadless lands" and designate roughly 1,800 miles of waterways as wild and scenic rivers.

Seventy seven-year-old King, a longtime environmental activist, said in a statement about the bill at the time, "By passing NREPA, Congress can give species a chance to thrive and stop the use of federal tax dollars from destroying the last of these incredibly beautiful and important wild places owned by all Americans.”

King teamed up with Maloney before and has been pushing for the bill since it was first introduced in 1992. During a 2015 visit to Maloney's office, the singer told ITK, “I’ve spent literally half my time, literally, when I’m not in the entertainment business or just being at home or whatever, I’m on the Hill or making calls for this cause."
