The Trump administration recently proposed drastically raising national park entrance fees to address the parks’ $11.3 billion repair backlog. Under this proposal, park entrance fees could go from $25 to $70! This could price many out of their national parks.There is a better way to address the backlog. Congress can support the National Park Service Legacy Act, bipartisan legislation that would dedicate more than $11 billion in federal funds to tackle the backlog over the next 30 years.Urge your lawmakers to stand up to the administration’s ill-conceived proposal and fix the parks by supporting the National Park Service Legacy Act.
Please support the National Park Service Legacy Act!
Dear [Decision Maker],
As one of the 1.3 million supporters of the National Parks Conservation Association, I urge you to support the National Park Legacy Act. Supporting this legislation is the correct way to deal with the repair backlog in our national parks. Increasing fees for visitors -- as the Department of the Interior has proposed -- won't address the large repair problem and will only make it harder for American families to visit their national parks.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
