BOULDER, Colo. – Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) today released the following statement in response to recent developments in the Senate regarding the “Build Back Better Act:”

“When Congress returns in January, we are hopeful they will advance important climate provisions contained in the ‘Build Back Better Act,’ like the creation of a Civilian Climate Corps and investments in outdoor restoration and climate resiliency,” said Lise Aangeenbrug, executive director of Outdoor Industry Association. “Whether these proposals – which have strong support in the Senate and the House – are passed as part of the budget reconciliation process or as standalone measures, the outdoor industry remains committed to working with lawmakers and the Biden administration to help solve the growing threat of climate change and ensure the outdoor recreation economy and local communities can continue to thrive.”
