The Great American Outdoors Act

Update! On July 22, 2020, the House overwhelmingly passed the bill by a strong bipartisan vote of 310-107 , sending the bill to the President for his signature and enactment into law.

During the week of June 14, the Senate overwhelmingly approved legislation that will provide the greatest investment in historic and cultural resources on our public lands in more than a generation. 
The Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA), which passed with bipartisan support by of vote of 73-25 on June 17, will invest up to $9.5 billion to repair historic and other assets of the National Park Service (NPS) and other federal agencies. It will also fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) at $900 million annually to help our public lands continue to grow to tell fuller American stories and provide greater access to our shared cultural heritage.
