National Park Service Extends Comment Period on $70. Fee Increase
A 30-day extension to the comment period of proposed fee increase for our National Parks, is in effect. Senator Steve Daines secured the extension so citizens can comment on the proposed $70.00 a car fee increase.
“It is critical that Montanans and Americans can afford to enjoy Montana’s national treasures,”Daines stated. “A fee increase of this magnitude needs enough time for Montanans and our visitors to have their voices heard.”
On November 14, Daines sent a letter to the Acting Director of the National Park Service, asking for an extension of the public comment period for fee increases at 17 national parks. Daines is the Chairman of the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Subcommittee on National Parks.
