Is This The Most Important Piece of Outdoor Legislation in 2016?
A bill introduced to the House of Representatives last week could change the game for the outdoor industry. What you need to know, and what you can do about it.
The Recreation’s Economic Contributions (REC) Act ensures that the outdoor recreation economy, including outdoor industry jobs and our economic impact are measured by the federal government and accounted for as part of the national Gross Domestic Product. This breakthrough legislation has now been introduced in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, and if passed, may result in positive policy trends for our public lands and waters.
Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
