LCV Statement on Rep. Don Young’s Anti-Parks Bill

Jan 15, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – The League of Conservation Voters Deputy Legislative Director Alex Taurel released this statement following the introduction of the Marine Access and State Transparency Act (H.R. 330) by Representative Don Young (R-AK):

“Congressman Young missed the message the American people sent during the government shutdown two years ago. Americans value our National Parks and iconic areas like Grand Canyon and Statue of Liberty, but this legislation would attack the century-old law that has helped protect them. By introducing this bill, Rep. Young has proven how out of step with the American people he truly is.”
