Interior Releases Report Documenting NPS Maintenance Budget and Research Shortfalls
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Interior Department, National Parks Conservation Association, National Park Service
Contributed By: The National Trust for Historic Preservation's Department of Public Policy
Website: http://www.npca.org/commission

The Interior Department released a report on Thursday which was commissioned by the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) and conducted by a panel of distinguished luminaries — including co-chairmen and former U.S. Sens. Howard Baker, Jr. (R-TN) and J. Bennett Johnston (D-LA) —as well as retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. Titled"Advancing the National Park Idea," the report concludes that the National Park Service “is woefully underfunded and, as a result, lacks adequate staff to maintain the 3,500 statues and memorials, 121 million museum artifacts and specimens, and 12,000 miles of roads it oversees.” The report also notes that the Park Service lacks the research capabilities to plan for and deal with the emerging threat posed by global warming on the parks’ resources.

For information on the report, visiting the NPCA website at http://www.npca.org/commission.
