    So President Trump signed this into law and there are a couple big wins for duck hunters (see highlighted below). I certainly hope some of that deferred maintenance money goes to fixing Pointe Mouillee's main pump!!

    Most likely federal, not state refuges?

    Yes but not just refuges. All federal lands and national parks. This stops the 900 million a year that was being stolen from natural resource profits and redirects it where it was originally intended. It also sets aside 9.5 billion over the next 5 years to make repairs and maintain federal lands. There is a $20 billion backlog in federal land maintenance prohects around the country that have been ignored.

    It is supposed to create 100k+ jobs over the the next 5 yrs in the industry. This is a big deal.

    The sad part is the democrats got it passed. Only 2 democrats in the house and senate voted against this. Over 125 Republicans in both chambers voted against this. That’s pretty disappointing.
