"House Panel Approves Bill To Boost Park Funding"

"A House committee voted Thursday to advance a landmark bipartisan bill to boost funding for national parks and public lands, using money from oil drilling and other energy production.

The House Natural Resources Committee passed the bill by voice vote with strong support from both parties.

The Restore Our Parks and Public Lands Act would take half of the federal government’s income from energy production on federal lands and offshore and put it in a fund to pay for maintenance for the National Park Service (NPS) and other agencies."
