WASHINGTON D.C. (FOX NEWS) – President Trump signed the Great American Outdoors Act on Tuesday morning – bipartisan legislation that’s been heralded as the most significant conservation bill in a generation.
The president, Vice President Pence, Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Sens. Steve Daines, R-Mont., and Cory Gardner, R-Colo., are all expected to give remarks prior to the signing.
Several senior administration officials, members of Congress, leaders from the Park Service, and various business executives from the fishing and gaming industry will also be in attendance.
That list includes Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and an adviser who was an outspoken advocate for the passage of the bill.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has made us value, now more than ever, the national treasure that is our parks and the respite they afford our families,” she said in a statement. “President Trump has secured funding for the next 100 years to preserve our national and public lands and return them to their grandeur.”
