And now, some good news:

Today, Congress passed the Great American Outdoors Act. Legislation based off John Dingell and Don Young’s initial legislation that permanently funds the Land and Water Conservation Fund to ensure the protection of – and access to – irreplaceable lands and local recreation opportunities in every state and nearly every county in America. This substantial legislation alone will support over 100,00 direct and indirect jobs, according to the Department of the Interior.

The Great American Outdoors Act achieves the twin goals of protecting America’s crown jewels and repairing deteriorating infrastructure, thereby allowing more Americans to access public lands. These critical investments will benefit future generations of children and ducklings alike.

Most importantly, the Great American Outdoors Act passed both the Senate and the House with wide bipartisan support and President Trump specifically requested the bill for his signature. ... r-critical
