Betty McCollum said : “The Park Service is already operating on a shoestring budget, and park staff have come to heavily rely on visitor fee dollars to fund law enforcement personnel, create educational programs for visitors, and address the nearly $12 billion in needed repairs for crumbling park buildings, trails and roads". The Park Service collected almost $300 million in revenue from entrance and recreation fees in FY2018, according to an Interior Department memo, but those fees are meant to be used to improve the visitor experience in parks, mostly through maintenance of existing buildings and roads. At least 80 percent of the money is supposed to be used in the same park where it is collected, but the National Mall does not collect entrance fees. The National Park Service has an almost $12 billion backlog of maintenance needs around the country, some threatening crucial infrastructure in the parks. Republicans and the Trump administration have been pushing legislation and efforts to direct more money to that work, but I expect members of Congress will argue moves like this put those efforts in jeopardy. Some members of Congress have already blasted the decision and specifically the fact that lawmakers with oversight of the Interior Department and National Park Service budget were not told about the decision. Democratic Rep. Betty McCollum, chair of the House Appropriations subcommittee that handles Interior's budget, said fees are not "a slush fund for this administration to use at will".

Betty McCollum said : “The Park Service is already operating on a shoestring budget, and park staff have come to heavily rely on visitor fee dollars to fund law enforcement personnel, create educational programs for visitors, and address the nearly $12 billion in needed repairs for crumbling park buildings, trails and roads". The Park Service collected almost $300 million in revenue from entrance and recreation fees in FY2018, according to an Interior Department memo, but those fees are meant to be used to improve the visitor experience in parks, mostly through maintenance of existing buildings and roads. At least 80 percent of the money is supposed to be used in the same park where it is collected, but the National Mall does not collect entrance fees. The National Park Service has an almost $12 billion backlog of maintenance needs around the country, some threatening crucial infrastructure in the parks. Republicans and the Trump administration have been pushing legislation and efforts to direct more money to that work, but I expect members of Congress will argue moves like this put those efforts in jeopardy. Some members of Congress have already blasted the decision and specifically the fact that lawmakers with oversight of the Interior Department and National Park Service budget were not told about the decision. Democratic Rep. Betty McCollum, chair of the House Appropriations subcommittee that handles Interior's budget, said fees are not "a slush fund for this administration to use at will".
