Congressman Connolly introduces trails bill

The Complete America's Great Trails Act, H.R. 1912, recently introduced by Congressman Connolly, will provide landowners with a tax credit to grant conservation easements and public access easements in 1/2 mile corridors of National Scenic Trails. This will help complete the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail, providing bike access south and east of the DC Metro area.

Representatives Gerry Connolly (D-VA), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) have introduced Complete America’s Great Trails Act to help close missing links and protect the scenic vistas of America’s eight National Scenic Trails.

Connolly said the bill will help connect America's greatest historic and scenic places, including trails in Fairfax and Prince William Counties connecting Mount Vernon with Pope’s Creek, George Washington's birthplace, and Pope's Creek with the Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail.

"The Complete America's Great Trails Act will protect trails that protect America's most treasured places, from Mt. Vernon to Mount St Helens, by providing landowners with incentives to protect public access and natural landscapes along America’s National Scenic Trails," Connolly said.
