Walorski: Great American Outdoors Act Will Boost RV and Boat Manufacturing, Protect Natural Resources
Bipartisan Legislation Will Revitalize National Parks, Enhance Access to Public Lands, Strengthen Outdoor Recreation Industry
WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today voted for the Great American Outdoors Act, bipartisan legislation that will revitalize our national parks, strengthen conservation efforts, support RV and boat manufacturers, and create Hoosier jobs.
“Our nation’s public lands have long been treasured sources of respite, enjoyment, and beauty available to every American, and they play a critical role in our economy,” Congresswoman Walorski said. “Hardworking Hoosiers know that better than anyone: manufacturers in northern Indiana build made-in-America outdoor recreation products, including 80 percent of the nation’s RVs. The Great American Outdoors Act will support RV and boat manufacturers and their workers, promote conservation, and revitalize our national parks so Americans can enjoy them for generations to come.”

The House passed the Senate Amendment to H.R. 1957, the Great American Outdoors Act, by a bipartisan vote of 310 to 107. The bill now heads to the president’s desk for his signature. President Trump has expressed support for the legislation.
Walorski last week authored a guest post for the RV Industry Association in support of the Great American Outdoors Act.
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
