President Trump is visiting Jupiter, Florida, today to discuss a new legislation act that would allocate millions of dollars to the state’s national parks.

The Great American Outdoors Act, which Trump signed back in August, will help fund national parks across the country and dedicate up to $1.9 billion a year for five years to maintenance and improvements.

The infrastructure cannot keep up without significant repairs.

This law will also give the Everglades a boost in funding, among Florida’s other gorgeous state parks, as well as wildlife refuges, recreation areas, and Native American schools.

It will also draw revenue from offshore oil and natural gas royalties, drawing in $900 million per year to invest back into conservation efforts.

The Palm Beach Post reports that this will be Trump’s eleventh visit to the Sunshine State this year, officially kicking off his new election campaign.
