(Houston, TX- June 19, 2020) Houston Safari Club Foundation fully supports the passage of the Great American Outdoors Act.
The U.S. Senate has passed the landmark conservation legislation introduced by U.S. Senators Cory Gardner (R-CO), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Steve Daines (R-MT), Rob Portman (R-OH), Mark Warner (D-VA), Angus King (I-ME), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Maria Cantwell (D-WA), Martin Heinrich (D-NM), and 51 other Senate members. The Great American Outdoors Act fully funds the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) at a level of $900 million every year and addresses the approximately $20 billion maintenance backlog on federal public lands.
This critical legislation will help rebuild our national park infrastructure and address the more than $12 billion backlog in long-delayed maintenance projects throughout the U.S. park system while supporting more than 100,000 jobs over the next five years.
Companion legislation (H.R.7092) was introduced in the U.S. House by Rep. Cunningham (D-SC). The President has signaled his support of the bill. Contact your U.S. Representative here to voice your support for the Great American Outdoors Act.
