Protect Our National Parks
Restore Our Parks Act (Senate Bill 500)
The Restore Our Parks Act establishes the NPS Legacy Restoration Fund to address the deferred maintenance in our National Parks. According to the National Park Service (NPS), there is more than $11 billion worth of repairs and deferred maintenance across the National Parks System.
The Restore Our Parks Act calls for 50% of all energy development royalties to be deposited into the NPS Legacy Restoration Fund. Additionally, the acquisition of land and discretionary spending will be prohibited, addressing concerns of federal overreach. This bipartisan initiative will ensure that our parks are preserved for years to come.
