Pres. Trump Signs Great American Outdoors Act | LIVE | NowThis
TRUMP SIGNS JOHN LEWIS’ BILL INTO LAW: Pres. Trump signs the Great American Outdoors Act into law. The bill, which was introduced in 2019 by the late Rep. John Lewis, makes funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which has used revenue from the oil and gas industry to help fund our nation’s parks, permanent. It also establishes the National Parks and Public Land Legacy Restoration Fund which will further use revenues from the energy sector, up to $1.9 billion each year for the next five fiscal years, to be used for maintenance projects by the National Park Service, the Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and other federal agencies.
