The RV Dealers and RV Industry Associations joined a group of about a dozen outdoor industry organizations to request a meeting with President-Elect Mike Pence’s transition team.
The group represents a coalition of outdoor industry groups that have banded together over the past year to work toward a common interest, according to the letter.
“This past year, leaders of outdoor industry associations made an unprecedented move to join forces and strategically work together for the benefit of American outdoor recreation as a whole,” the letter said.
The coalition hopes to work with the new administration to establish an “Outdoor Recreational Business Roundtable” as a White House-level advisory group to “address sector specific opportunities and select executives that collectively represent the interests of the outdoor recreation industry,” the letter said.
The group also looks to discuss infrastructure needs and funding for the Federal Lands Transportation Program and the Federal Lands Access Program “to pay for the completion of all surface transportation projects in and leading to federal public lands and waters before the end of your first term.”
Other issues discussed in the letter include workforce development and recexpansion of recreational access at federally managed lands and waters.
