The Great American Outdoors Act will be introduced in the Senate today, and your Senators need to hear that you support it! This set of bills is a monumental opportunity to net more money for trails, recreation projects and trail maintenance.
The Act includes dedicated full funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) following its recent permanent reauthorization, which you helped pass earlier this year. Dedicated funding is the next big step in decades-long advocacy work for LWCF!
This Act also addresses the trail maintenance backlog for the National Park Service, the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management. IMBA and our partners worked hard to include the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management in the Act, and your Senators need to make sure those agencies remain included because they are so important for mountain biking. Read more background on the Act from our partners at Outdoor Alliance.
This is an incredible opportunity for trails and these bills are moving fast. The Senate could vote on The Great American Outdoors Act this week. Show your support today!
