HOUSTON, TX- Houston Safari Club Foundation (HSCF) applauds the U.S. House of Representatives Passage of the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act (H.R.3742) as an amendment to the Moving Forward Act. With passage out of the House of the Moving Forward Act, which includes the bipartisan Recovering America’s Wildlife Act (H.R.3742), legislation has now moved forward to help create over 33,000 new jobs annually, supporting future economic growth in the outdoor recreation sector through infrastructure improvements, and help fund improvements for imperiled species and their habitats. The $1.4 billion annual investment from the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act would lead to an additional $3.36 billion of economic output, a net positive gain of $1.96 billion to the Gross Domestic Product and direct much needed funding towards restoring habitats and species and rebuilding both natural and recreational infrastructure in urban and rural communities.
