National Parks Conservation Association Statement on Senator Murray's Budget Resolution
Statement By NPCA Senior Vice President for Government Affairs Craig Obey
"Senator Murray has contributed a refreshing budget blueprint that values investments in our national treasures, not reflexive, mindless cuts. She recognizes that our communities, businesses, and futures all benefit from protecting our heritage, keeping our national parks and their visitor facilities open, and confronting the challenges posed by climate change. As Congress and the Obama administration debate the chasm that separates the approaches in the Murray and Ryan budgets, we hope the values and aspirations Senator Murray’s proposal promotes will find their way into the actual funding Congress provides for our national treasures and our environment."
