Hornady® Supports Passage of Great American Outdoors Act

Grand Island, NE — Hornady applauds the U.S. Senate’s recent approval of the $9.5 billion Great American Outdoors Act and encourages American sportsmen and women to support its passage in the House of Representatives.

“This historic conservation measure addresses critical needs on several fronts,” said Jason Hornady, vice president of Hornady Manufacturing and chairman of the board for the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF). “It provides funds to repair the crumbling infrastructure of America’s public lands and waters while creating 100,000 jobs and providing recreational opportunities for hunters and anglers.”

The Senate passed the bill by a bipartisan vote of 73-25 on June 17.

The bill includes $6.5 billion for the National Park Service, and the CSF advocated for an additional $3 billion to maintain public lands infrastructure overseen by the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and U.S. Forest Service.

The bill also secures full and permanent funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) at $900 million annually from royalties paid by offshore energy developers. The nation’s most successful conservation program, the LWCF has completed a conservation, recreation or access project in every single county in the nation.

The Great American Outdoors Act also provides $15 million annually to increase public access for hunting, fishing, recreational shooting and other forms of outdoor recreation.

“This measure provides much more than opportunities for good times in the great outdoors,” Hornady said. “It delivers an economic stimulus to communities hit hard by COVID-19 while addressing a backlog of maintenance issues for our public lands.

“I’m proud of the work our foundation has done to shepherd the Great American Outdoors Act through the Senate,” he said. “I encourage all who love our public lands and waterways to contact their Representative to ensure its passage in the House.”
