Ask Your U.S. Senators to Support the American Outdoor Recreation Act
Enjoying time in the great outdoors is not only fun, but it’s beneficial to a person's mental and physical health. Outdoor recreational activities are also a key economic driver in communities across the U.S., employing over 4.5 million Americans.
The SAN is committed to expanding motorized recreational access on government lands, which is why we strongly support the America’s Outdoor Recreation Act of 2023 (AORA), S. 873. This bipartisan bill:
- Requires federal land management agencies to increase opportunities for motorized and non-motorized access to public lands;
- Includes provisions to streamline the process and expenses associated with obtaining special recreation permits; and
- Directs the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service to make maps available to the public depicting where vehicles are allowed or prohibited, and to keep them up to date.
Don’t wait—tell your U.S. Senators they need to expand motorized recreational opportunities by supporting the American Outdoor Recreation Act.
