NEWSLETTER: Taking Action to Preserve Our Natural Resources


I was proud to bring the Great American Outdoors Act to the House Floor last week and ensure its passage. This legislation permanently funds the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which has been used to protect and preserve some of Maryland's most treasured sites. Over the years, I've worked hard to protect the viewshed of George Washington’s Mt. Vernon site through the creation of Piscataway Park as well as to protect the Patuxent Research Refuge, Douglas Point in Nanjemoy, and other sites throughout the state. The Land and Water Conservation Fund made all of that possible.


I'm pleased that this legislation passed with overwhelming bipartisan support, and I hope the President will sign it without delay. I will continue working with my colleagues to protect our natural resources and ensure Maryland families can enjoy these beautiful sites for generations to come. 

As always, I encourage all Fifth District residents to continue to share their concerns and insights with me by contacting my office or connecting with me on FacebookTwitter, or Instagram. If you need assistance with a federal agency, please click here.      


Sincerely Yours,   
Steny H. Hoyer
