Committee Advances National Park Maintenance Backlog Bill


WASHINGTON, D.C., September 13, 2018 -


Today, the House Committee on Natural Resources passed H.R. 6510 (U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah), the Restore Our Parks and Public Lands Act.

“As America’s beloved national parks buckle under the weight of broken pipes, crumbling roads, and other incomplete projects, additional funding is crucial to keeping parks safe and accessible for the public. This bill addresses that need. I thank Secretary Zinke, Ranking Member Grijalva, Rep. Mike Simpson, and all those on both sides of the aisle who have supported this legislation. Maintaining our national parks knows no party lines,” Chairman Bishop said.

H.R. 6510 establishes, funds, and provides for the use of amounts in a National Park Service and Public Lands Legacy Restoration Fund to address the maintenance backlog of the National Park Service, United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and Bureau of Indian Education.
