(CNSNews.com) - The $3.5-trillion 2,465-page spending bill the House is considering now includes a provision that sets aside $250 million to be used for providing grants to tribal, state or local governments, a regional organization, a special district, or a nonprofit organization to conduct projects on “non-Federal land” that “expand equitable outdoor access and promote tourism” for “members of underserved groups.”

The clause of the 2,465-page bill that does this says:

“(4) $250,000,000 to award grants to a Tribal, State, or local government, a regional organization, a special district, or a nonprofit organization for projects on non-Federal land to expand equitable outdoor access and promote tourism on non-Federal forested lands for members of underserved groups;”
