What it is, how it works, and why it needs to be reformed
Today’s myth: As taxpaying citizens, we should not pay to visit our national parks.
...the first thing to do is stop digging.
Congress should stop acquiring more federal land for the park system and start maintaining what we’ve already got.
Using the LWCF to acquire land—without first addressing the billions of dollars in deferred maintenance on the existing federal land—will threaten the ecological health, public accessibility and economic productivity of these precious lands.
