The bill also repeals several of President Trump’s section 212(f)-based executive actions, including the original Muslim ban as well as the most recent expansion of the ban announced in January 2020.

Senate Amendment to H.R. 1957 – Great American Outdoors Act (Rep. Grijalva – Natural Resources)

This bill provides permanent, full funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and establishes the National Parks and Public Land Legacy Restoration Fund.
