Oregon Board Chair Ian Isaacson with a Letter to the Editor in last weeks Bend Bulletin, celebrating the passage of the Great American Outdoor Act.
It has been a long road, but the hunters and anglers of the Beaver State have persevered and leveraged our collective voices in support of the Great American Outdoors Act. By sending this crystal-clear signal to our legislators, sportsmen and -women told our elected officials that the time was long overdue to fully support the lands and waters that have provided us with so much.
Now that President Donald Trump has signed the GAOA into law, I would like to take this moment, on behalf of the Oregon Chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, to thank Rep . Greg Walden, Sen. Ron Wyden and Sen. Jeff Merkley for hearing the voices of their constituents and supporting this landmark public lands package. Passage of the GAOA was a huge step in the right direction. I call on all public land owners to keep this momentum going.
—Ian Isaacson, Bend
