Daines touts bill to fill maintenance backlog for national parks

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Steve Daines touted Wednesday his bill to set aside energy development revenue and private donations to pay for the backlog of National Parks Service projects.

The Montana Republican chaired a hearing of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Subcommittee on National Parks. He spoke in favor of his Restore Our Parks Act, which creates a fund to pay for $11.6 billion of maintenance backlog nationwide.

Daines noted Montana has a $217.5 million backlog, with the largest portion, $153.8 million, at Glacier National Park.
