This afternoon marks a historic day as the House of Representatives passed the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA) in a 310-107 vote. The legislation will now go to the President for signature.
The GAOA is the single greatest commitment to increasing public access and advancing conservation in our lifetime.
This bill provides $900 million annually to the Land and Water Conservation Fund, increases public access, provides funding for federal and state agencies, and aids in completing the deferred maintenance backlog on public lands and waterways.
Thank you to everyone who has contacted their representatives and been a part of the voice for sportsmen and sportswomen. The essential funding that this bill provides will have a tremendous impact on our wildlife and public lands across the nation.
