Triumph! Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 363-62 in support of S. 47, the public lands package recently passed by the Senate, meaning Congress has voted to permanently reauthorize the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF)! The legislation now goes to the desk of President Trump.
The legislation's passage is a huge victory for supporters of public lands, including Scenic America and our allies in the LWCF Coalition. The LWCF is our most important national conservation program, having preserved open spaces and created outdoor recreation opportunities in every state and nearly every county in the United States, all at no cost to taxpayers.
We sincerely thank all of you who have taken action in support of LWCF in recent months, your efforts made a real difference.
Thank you again for your continued support,
P.S. Scenic America is the only national nonprofit association dedicated to preserving and enhancing the visual character of our country. Your donation today will help us further protect America the Beautiful.
