“Arizona is home to diverse public lands and outdoor recreation which draw millions of visitors from across the nation and world,” said Kim Sabow, President and CEO of the Arizona Lodging and Tourism Association. “Our national, state and local parks, trails and public lands are a critical economic driver for communities. The Great American Outdoors Act will provide much needed resources to our state while the tourism industry begins to recover from the devastating economic impact of COVID-19.”
Arozpma Sportsmen for Wildlife Conversation (AZSFWC) has long advocated for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LCWF), for its periodic reauthorization, and now permanent funding. The benefits of the LWCF span the entire outdoor recreation spectrum and offer opportunities for all our residents. AZSFWC is pleased the language is supporting this legislation is included in the Great American Outdoors Act, funding not only the LWCF, but finally addressing the maintenance backlog our Federal Land management agencies contend with in our National Parks, Monuments and other public lands with infrastructure needs,” said Jim Unmacht, AZSFWC Executive Director.
