Vet Voice Foundation Statement Following Senate Passage of The Great American Outdoors Act

The Vet Voice Foundation’s Will Goodwin, a US Army veteran, released the following statement today: 

Today, the U.S. Senate passed the Great American Outdoors Act including permanent, full funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund. This victory comes as the result of so many veterans, military families, allied groups, and individuals — around the country and in the halls of Congress — putting in the work and demanding that our cherished public lands be protected.

“But we’re not quite done yet. 

“We now ask that the U.S. House of Representatives moves swiftly to pass this common sense, bipartisan legislation so it can reach the president’s desk as soon as possible.

“A vote in support of The Great American Outdoors Act is a vote in support of our nation’s veterans.  We applaud the bipartisan momentum behind this bill.”
