The bipartisan bill sets aside approximately $20 billion for restoration of national parks over the next 10 years
President Donald Trump signed off on the Great American Outdoors Act last week, which will provide full funding of the Land and Water Conservation Fund and address the maintenance backlog of America’s national parks and public lands.
The House and the Senate cleared both bills by overwhelming bipartisan margins this summer.
The law would spend about $900 million a year on the conservation fund and another $1.9 billion per year on improvements at national parks, forests, wildlife refuges, and rangelands.
