11 States Launch Resistance to National Park Fee Changes
"California moved Wednesday to block the Trump administration’s proposal to more than double entrance fees at popular national parks, including Yosemite and Joshua Tree National Parks," reports Angela Hart.
California was one of 11 states to sign a letter arguing against the proposal on the grounds that the fee increases "would limit public access for low-income people and communities of color."
"The letter has no legal standing to prevent fee increases, but [California Attorney General Xavier] Becerra and other state attorneys general did not rule out future legal action," reports Hart.
Public comment on the proposal to raise National Park entrance fees is open until December 22.
