Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump signed a measure Tuesday that will fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund — a program his administration’s budget proposals had repeatedly tried to cut.
The legislation signing marks an important political win for Republican Sens. Cory Gardner of Colorado and Steve Daines of Montana, who both hail from conservation-minded states and face tough reelection races this November.
The Great American Outdoors Act passed with bipartisan support, but no Democrats were invited to the event. Instead, Trump largely credited Daines and Gardner for its passage.
