Tool Kit: Explore America Act 

A bipartisan and geographically diverse group of Senators have come together to empower gateway communities to better tell their stories and drive visitation and increased spending. Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI), Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), and Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) have introduced “The Explore America Act”. This Act will authorize the provision of technical assistance under the Preserve America Program to direct the Secretary of the Interior to enter into partnerships with communities, adjacent to units of the National Park System, to leverage local cultural and heritage tourism assets.  Now is the time to contact your congressional representatives to encourage them to support "The Explore America Act".
