Kudos to Mr. Tipton and Mr. Udall for moving forward toward legislation and for paying unprecidented attention to addressing local concerns within the national park draft bill.  Thank you to the many local leaders who took the time to meet and voice their passionate support.
Greg Mikolai is correct that the NPS regulations for national monuments and national parks are identical.  As for how national parks impact economy’s of surrounding Gateway towns?  Time and again research shows the impact is overwhelmingly positive.
  For those few left on the fence, the release of entirely community driven draft legislation will answer most if not all remaining questions or concerns and clear up any lingering misinformation once and for all.
We look forward to it as does the drafting committee.  After a long three year process and with the draft done, why wait?  The creation of a national park truly exemplifies democracy at its best. We applaud the Representatives for making it public as soon as possible.
