Description
 
This report documents how members of Congress have used the Park Service to advance parochial interests while ignoring billions in maintenance backlog at our nationäó»s most prized national parks, and outlines areas of low-priority and wasteful spending by the Park Service. Funding for low-priority and obscure parks earmarked by lawmakers has come at the cost of caring for our national treasures like the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, the National Mall and Independence Park in Philadelphia.  Last year alone, the National Park Service put off more than a quarter billion dollars in much needed maintenance projects, adding to the $11.5 billion maintenance backlog already threatening the health, safety, and accessibility of park visitors.  This report aims to inspire Congress to set common sense priorities and make sure our parks reflect our nationäó»s greatness rather than the governmentäó»s incompetence. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
