The RV Industry Association asked its members to write to their federal representatives in support of the Great American Outdoors Act this week.
The Senate is set to vote on the act soon, at a time when many industry analysts have identified a post-pandemic boom in the RV sales, rentals and vacations businesses. The RVIA has coordinated efforts in support of passing the Great American Outdoors Act, which the association says will help protect the RV lifestyle across the country.
“This landmark legislation will improve the safety and enjoyment of RVers on federal lands by providing non-taxpayer dollars to address issues such as crumbling roads, bridges, campgrounds, marinas, historical sites, visitor centers, and more,” the RVIA announced. “This bipartisan bill will not only benefit the over 20 million current RVers, it will also protect our treasured national lands for generations of RVers to come.”
The RVIA is now encouraging members to write digital letters to their Senators asking them to pass the Great Outdoors Act. Click here for a submission template.
RVIA President Craig Kirby and CEO of the Corps Network Mary Ellen Sprenkel wrote an Op-ed to The Salt Lake Tribune this week as well in favor of passing the GAOA.
“Current economic and self-isolation situations have made the GAOA more significant than ever,” they wrote. “If signed into law — which the president has already committed to do — this bipartisan legislation would improve the economy, create jobs and strengthen the vitality of our public lands and waters for years to come. It would also help our country heal mentally and physically.
