These were in addition to discussions on the impact of the Outdoor Hospitality Industry the OHI team had with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia); Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-Montana); and Rep. Katie Porter (D-California); as well as Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Arkansas) and Gov. Doug Burgum (North Dakota) at the National Outdoor Recreation Executive Forum on Tuesday. 

All totaled, the OHI team has held successful in-depth discussions with more than 30 influential legislators in the past three days.

 “As the national voice of the Outdoor Hospitality Industry, our focus this week has been to advocate for legislation that will help our industry be more successful and to showcase the positive impact our industry has on the nation’s economy,” says OHI President and CEO Paul Bambei. “We are and always have been the watch dog for RV parks and campgrounds, and we’re honored to give our valued members a powerful voice in Washington.” 

The OHI team gained significant traction on these issues and is actively planning a series of follow-up meetings for later this summer in order to keep these important pieces of legislation moving forward for the betterment of our industry.
