Montana Democrats' Statement on Proposal to Raise Rates at National Parks
Helena – Today, Montana Democratic Party Executive Director Nancy Keenan released the following statement in response to a proposal to raise entrance fees to 17 National Parks, including Yellowstone and Glacier:
"In Montana, public lands have always been an essential part of our economy and our identity. It is completely unacceptable that Washington bureaucrats who should know better are trying to create barriers that would block Montanans from the National Parks that rightfully belong to all of us. Senator Steve Daines and Congressman Greg Gianforte must follow Senator Tester's lead in condemning this unacceptable proposal and finally join the fight to protect our public lands and our way of life."
