Tell Congress to support the SHORE Act!
Congress is debating much-needed legislation to update our nation’s ports, harbors, and waterways – but we need to ensure outdoor recreation is included in this debate.
The bipartisan Safer Harbors for Our Recreation Economy (SHORE) Act would require federal agencies to account for recreation’s economic impact when approving projects.
For the outdoor recreation industry – and the entire U.S. economy – to continue to grow, it is essential that navigation and harbor maintenance projects are sufficiently funded to:
- Create jobs in coastal and inland waterway communities;
- Improve access for water-based recreational activities; and
- Make conditions safer for the recreational boating and angling communities.
For too long, water infrastructure projects that support recreation access have gone unappreciated and neglected – tell Congress to support the SHORE Act!
