SCENIC ALERT from Scenic America - Good News!  

WE DID IT.

On July 1st, H.R. 2, the Moving Forward Act—a piece of legislation that will help fund our transportation priorities as a nation for the next 5 years—passed the House by a vote of 233-188. 

We have 3 big, big wins to boast about here:

·        Amendment #316, the brazen attack by the billboard industry to overrun our nations highways, FAILED. It is NOT in this legislation.
·        H.R. 2 includes funding for the National Scenic Byways Program for the first time in 8 years, a total of $325 million over 5 years
·        And it grants access to $25 billion per year for undergrounding of utility wires, through the National Highway Performance Program.
What happens now?

The Senate has their own piece of legislation (S. 2302). Once it passes, the two bills will go to a conference committee. The Senate will act on theirs either later this summer, or early in the fall. It is must-pass legislation, so its on its way for sure. Well keep you updated and let you know how its going!

This was an immense group effort. 

The calls, the emails, the letters, the meetings—it all added up to these hard-fought, but substantial, wins for our nations scenic beauty. The business of crafting legislation can be a heartbreaking one, but because of you, we can chalk this one up as a victory. We could not have done this without you—every single one of you. 

Our supporters are simply the best. 

With gratitude,
