Acting Secretary Bernhardt Signs Order for Public Lands Package Implementation

On March 27, Acting Secretary David Bernhardt signed Secretarial Order 3374, which directs bureaus within the Department of the Interior (DOI) to implement the John Dingell Conservation, Management, and Recreation Act (S. 47).

Recently signed into law, S. 47 is a comprehensive package of legislation that promotes public access to federal public lands for outdoor recreation including hunting, angling, and recreational shooting, among other sportsmen’s priorities.

“The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation praises Acting Secretary Bernhardt and the Interior Department for prioritizing the John Dingell Lands Package through this important Secretarial Order,” said Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation President Jeff Crane. “S. 47 provides the most significant, positive advances for conservation as well as sportsmen’s access in a decade, and we look forward to working with the department and its bureaus during the implementation process.”
