This bill's passage and ultimate signing by President Trump (combined with last year's permanent authorization of the LCWF) are the greatest victories for sportsmen and the places they like to visit since the Robertson-Pitman and Dingal-Johnson Acts. I am in my mid 30s and I can honestly say this is probably the greatest legislation passed in my adult life. I can't think of another action of any local, state, or federal government that will have a longer lasting positive impact on my life and the lives of my fellow countrymen and women. My kids will benefit from this when they are adults, as will their children.

Thank you to anyone who wrote their legislator or supports a group that promoted these actions.

This is a great thing for America during a time of many bad things.

I understand some of the reservations, but we spend sh*t loads of money on other things that are a lot worse. Atleast in this case the defecit spending is going to a good program.

I guess you are either a glass is half full guy or a half empty guy.

This bill is a huge win for public land and the people who use it.

IMO

Totally this is great news!
You can see who supported it here,
https://www.backcountryhunters.org/take_action#/votes/detail/id/6511
In Washington only Newhouse voted against it.
Nationwide the bill had 99.5% Democratic house support and around 41% support from the Republican house

Where can you see the Senate votes? I know it passed the Republican held Senate before it went to the House.

Like always, SCI was at the tip of the spear fighting hard in the D.C. for Conservation, Hunter Advocacy and Public Lands.

As an SCI/SCIF Life Member, the Northwest's Regional Representative, and a longstanding Member of the Board of Directors and some of its operational Committees, I'm proud to say that we and our membership were instrumental in helping push this landmark legislation through the House, Senate and the President's desk.

I searched yesterday, but couldn't find when it would be on Trump's desk, has it been signed yet?

Why did you start another thread about this when there was one already you commented on  :dunno:
Why are you on a hunting site?
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

Trying to keep the politics out of the Advocacy, Agencies, Access thread.
But feel free to attack me over learning about public stewardship and which party supports it.

Good News!
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.
Psalm 144.1
