  • Monumental news: We received no less than 10 press releases with statements from conservation and outdoor organizations about the House's passage of the massive public lands package. “This bill is proof that, even in our current political climate, there are issues both Republicans and Democrats can agree on. It reinforces our belief that time outdoors has the power to unite us,” Eric Artz, REI Co-op interim president and CEO, said in a statement. “REI has worked for years with elected officials on both sides of the aisle on legislation that protects our public lands and creates access to the outdoors. The degree of bipartisanship is historic and worth celebrating. We’re proud to see this bill move to the White House and we encourage the President to sign it.” Read our story here.
