Stand Up and Take Action!
In late July, Senator Wyden and Chairman Bishop introduced the bipartisan and bicameral Recreation Not Red-Tape (RNR) Act with the full support of the broad and diverse outdoor recreation community. As outdoor recreation grows in popularity and in economic impact, land management agencies need updated tools to protect and improve access to America's public lands and waters. The RNR Act offers sensible, non-controversial proposals for identifying and appropriately managing important places for sustainable outdoor recreation across the country. If passed, this bipartisan and bicameral bill will update processes and policies on our national public lands to improve the outdoor recreation experience, which is good for the $887 billion recreation economy, its 7.6 million jobs and all outdoor businesses.
Please contact your Senator and/or representative asking them to co-sponsor the RNR Act.
