Congress Approves ACPA-supported Great American Outdoors Act
With bipartisan support, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 310-107 last Wednesday to pass the Great American Outdoors Act.
The bill, supported by ACPA, creates a dedicated fund for addressing the National Park Service’s $12 billion deferred maintenance backlog and permanently funds the Land & Water Conservation Fund at $900 million a year.
As we reported in ACPA TODAY, the American Concrete Pavement Association and other members of the HMG, along with other organizations, advocated for passage of the bill. As we also reported, the bill passed in the Senate by a vote of 73 to 25 last month. President Trump is expected to sign this bill into law.
