The Great American Outdoors Act Heads to the House

By Bethany Erb

After a Senate victory earlier this week, the House of Representatives is now preparing to take up the Great American Outdoors Act. This final vote would send the bill to the President's desk. We need your voice in support of the current bill with no amendments! If passed, this historic achievement would allocate billions of dollars for conservation, public lands and the future of sportsmen and women - especially during these challenging times.

PF/QF Collective Messaging:
Dear Representative,
Please support the passing of the Great American Outdoors Act (S.3422) in its present form with no amendments. If funded, GAOA would:

Fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund that has direct impact on growing the outdoor recreation economy in all 50 states.

Fund the U.S. National Park Service and deliver much-needed financial aid to address the backlog of maintenance projects on federal lands that support  hunting, angling, conservation and overall recreation experiences.

This broadly supported, bipartisan legislation would be a momentous achievement for conservation. Thanks in advance for your support of the Great American Outdoors Act!

 The Great American Outdoors Act will fully and permanently fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) at $900 million a year every year. To see what LWCF does for your state click here.
The GAOA will also provide much-needed funding for backlog maintenance and infrastructure projects on public lands. This includes improving access for hunting, fishing, and outdoor recreation.
Help continue the fight for conservation policy:
