The Senate voted Wednesday 73 to 25 to pass the Great American Outdoors Act, a bill that permanently and fully funds the Land and Water Conservation Fund and provides money for the growing maintenance backlog on public lands. 

Up next is the House of Representatives version of the bill, H.R. 7092, which was introduced by Rep. Joe Cunningham (D-SC) on June 4 with strong bipartisan support. The legislation currently has nearly 50 cosponsors from around the country. 

Trout Unlimited issued a statement shortly after Senate passage of the bill.
