Saturday, US Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) held a virtual Zoom discussion following the signing of a historic parks bill. He spoke with Virginia activists and environmentalists on the benefits of the new Great American Outdoors Act. It was signed into law Tuesday.

The act is designed to help ensure maintenance for Virginia’s parks and could create more than 10,000 jobs in Virginia alone.

“My hope is that we can see some of this work getting started this fall, and this great part of our history, heritage, and the great outdoors will be preserved,” Warner said during the Zoom call.

He says has been working for the last three years to provide relief to our state’s national parks.
