 Below is a statement from ASLA President Shawn T. Kelly, FASLA on the passage of Reviving America's Scenic Byways Act:

 "The scenic roadways that wind through our nation showcase all the natural beauty our land has to offer. As landscape architects, we have a mandate to be responsible stewards of the environment – and the American Society of Landscape Architects fully supports this incredible effort to highlight the natural, cultural, and scenic qualities of these roadways. ASLA has been a proud supporter of the Reviving America's Scenic Byways Act from the start. We are excited the bill is finally on its way to the president's desk. We also thank the bill sponsors, Reps. David Cicilline (D-RI) and Garret Graves (R-LA) in the House of Representatives and Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Ben Cardin (D-MD) in the Senate, for their support."

Shawn T. Kelly, FASLA
President of the American Society of Landscape Architects
