Bishop, Wyden Bill Promoting Recreation Opportunities on Federal Lands Passes Committee


WASHINGTON, D.C., April 18, 2018 -

Today, House Committee on Natural Resources Chairman Rob Bishop (R-Utah) and Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), praised the passage of H.R. 3400, the Recreation Not Red-Tape Act or RNR Act, a bipartisan, bicameral bill that promotes increased access to outdoor recreation opportunities on federal lands and boosts rural economies across the country.

“Today is a great bipartisan win for outdoor recreation.  We want to make it easier for all Americans, and the people in my home state of Utah, to enjoy recreation on federal lands and this bipartisan legislation does just that.  I’d like to thank Sen. Ron Wyden and my colleagues on the committee for recognizing outdoor recreation’s important role in our economy and for coming together to support reforms that will make valuable recreation improvements a reality,” Chairman Bishop stated.  

“Our bipartisan RNR Act removes roadblocks that make it harder to grow rural economies and more difficult for Americans to get outdoors and enjoy all our public lands have to offer in Oregon and nationwide,” Wyden said. “I’m thrilled Chairman Bishop was able to move our bill forward. We’ll be working overtime to pass the Recreation Not Red-Tape Act into law to speed up rural job creation and help recreation businesses thrive, while protecting our natural treasures,” Senator Wyden said.
