House Resolution Expresses Support for P3s at National Parks 

U.S. H. Res. 794 provides that it is the sense of Congress that public-private partnerships (P3) should be utilized for projects to address infrastructure needs for national parks, national forests, and public lands and waters and for conservation efforts at these sites. P3s could be used to address modernizing and expanding campgrounds, increasing access to recreational areas, addressing backlogged maintenance, and improving deteriorating infrastructure, according to the resolution. The resolution notes that the federal government owns and manages roughly 640 million acres of land in the United States, including 59 national parks. Rep. Dennis Ross (R-FL) is the sponsor for the recently introduced resolution, which has one co-sponsor to date, Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN).
