WASHINGTON—The Great American Outdoors Act easily passed both houses of Congress earlier this summer in a rare act of bipartisanship. President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed the law giving almost $1 billion to the Land and Water Conservation Fund and nearly $2 billion to improving protected lands across the country. The president compared the measure to President Theodore Roosevelt creating national parks. “We want every American child to have access to pristine outdoor spaces,” he said.
