“Last night the White House announced that President Trump signed into law the ‘Reviving America’s Scenic Byways Act of 2019.’
This is a great victory for all of us! Together we made phone calls and sent emails to our Members of Congress and that work paid off. Congratulations, and thank you for making Scenic America who we are today.
The law requires the Secretary of Transportation to start the application process for new byways within 90 days and designate a round of new National Scenic Byways within one year. We’ll keep you updated as this process unfolds.
Click here to read Scenic America’s full statement, along with those of allied organizations, on the signing of the legislation. To better understand how this new law will benefit communities along scenic byways everywhere, please read our editorial published in The Hill last week.
We would again like to thank Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) and Rep. Garret Graves (R-LA) for their leadership in the House, and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) for their leadership in the Senate. ”
