“Food trucks and Amazon deliveries in national parks are a horrific idea”
— Los Angeles Times
The Interior Department’s “Made in America” Outdoor Recreation Advisory Committee — a vehicle for special interests and private industry within Interior — has just proposed a set of recommendations to begin PRIVATIZING America’s national parks!
They want to jack up park fees, cut senior discounts, and privatize campgrounds in order to fill the pockets of Trump donors who stand to benefit from lucrative contracts. Private industry and corporate concessionaires have been pushing this for a long time, and now they have a willing ally in former lobbyist and current Interior Secretary David Bernhardt.
We need to raise our voices and make it clear the American people won’t put up with their corruption. Will you make a call to Interior’s “Made in America” Outdoor Recreation Advisory Committee and tell them you OPPOSE their plan to start privatizing our national parks?
Their scheme means one thing: the park-going public’s money will go to connected special interests and campaign donors instead of supporting the parks themselves. Just take a look at who sits on the “Made in America” committee:
And those are just a few examples. This committee is stacked with industry insiders, and it’s clear this is Bernhardt and the Trump administration’s latest attempt to rip public lands out of public hands.
We’re working hard to make sure they don’t get away with it, and we need to show Interior that the American people do NOT approve. Make a call to the “Made in America” Outdoor Recreation Advisory Committee at 202-354-3950 and tell them to stop selling out our national parks!
