Reports The Hill:
Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) has introduced legislation that would prevent national park closures during any future government shutdown.
The bill, titled the “Provide Access and Retain Continuity Act” (PARC), would allow states to fund and keep operations running at parks and other federal facilities or programs that directly effect tourism, mining, timber, or transportation.
“The PARC Act would ensure that an agreement is in place to allow states to quickly continue funding and operating federal facilities and programs that are vital to their economies, if they so choose,” Stewart said in a statement on Tuesday.
