National Park Funding Threatened Again

A new report by the National Parks and Conservation Association highlights how the budget cuts being considered by the Super Committee in Congress will impact our National Parks.

Some interesting facts include:

Funding for National Park Budget accounts for 1/13 of one percent of the Federal budget

The existing appropriation for National Parks is already $400 million or 13% less than it was ten years ago.

In FY 2011 the operations budget for our parks was reduced by $11.5 million.  They are now facing more cuts.
