Great news -- yesterday the U.S. Senate voted 92-8 in favor of S. 47, the Natural Resources Management Act, legislation that includes permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF).
The bill's passage is a huge victory for supporters of public lands, including Scenic America and our allies in the LWCF Coalition. The LWCF is one of our most important national conservation programs, 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. We will keep you apprised of LWCF's progress in the House and give you an opportunity to quickly and easily take action in further support of LWCF when the time is right.
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 our impact.
