GREAT AMERICAN OUTDOORS ACT PASSES, AWAITS PRESIDENTIAL APPROVAL

Visitors come from around the world to experience California’s deserts. After decades of financial neglect, the Great American Outdoors Act was passed by Congress Wednesday; the Act will help address the deteriorating infrastructure in our national parks, increase funding for the conservation of the desert’s vast public lands, and improve public access. The act requires a mandatory funding of $900 million a year; the funds do not come from taxpayer dollars, but rather from revenue generated by energy projects on public lands. The bill now awaits final signature by Donald Trump.
