Legislation was just introduced by bipartisan members of Congress to Improve Access to Outdoor Recreation Opportunities.
U.S. Sens. Ron Wyden, D-OR and Joni Ernst, R-IA and Congressmen Rob Bishop, R-UT, and Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-MI, reintroduced legislation in the Senate and House to remove barriers to outdoor recreation and boost rural economies across the country.
Their bipartisan Recreation Not Red Tape (RNR) Act would promote access to outdoor recreation opportunities and allow more visitors to get outdoors. The RNR Act would streamline the permitting process for guides and recreation enthusiasts, hold federal agencies accountable for making outdoor recreation a priority for the first time and increase volunteerism to address the maintenance backlog on America's public lands.
