McClintock Praises Decision to Release Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act Funds for National Parks During the Government Shutdown

Roseville, CA...Congressman Tom McClintock today praised the decision of Acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to release Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act funds for garbage collection, restroom servicing and other emergency maintenance at national parks during the government shutdown.




“FLREA funds paid by park visitors are specifically set aside for ‘repair, maintenance, and facility enhancement related directly to visitor enjoyment, visitor access, and health and safety,’ McClintock noted. “Clearly these purposes fall within the parameters of the act and are not subject to the appropriations lapse. In addition, I believe that the Park Service can also continue to fund these activities absent appropriations through the exceptions made in the Antideficiency Act for public health and safety and for the protection of federal property.”

“The extraordinary actions by this administration to minimize the disruptions to park vendors and visitors during this shutdown stand in stark contrast to the previous administration that went to such extremes as barricading highway turn-offs to prevent anyone from even getting a glimpse of Yosemite Valley. The Obama administration went out of its way to deny the public the right to access the public lands; the Trump administration is doing everything it can to protect their right,” McClintock said.

Attached are Congressman McClintock’s letter to the Acting Secretary on January 4th and Mr. Bernhardt’s reply.

    There are ZERO CHARGES President Trump can be impeached over since being sworn into office and anything before that he CANNOT be impeached over. The Liberal Progressive Socialist Leninist Marxism Communist Fascist leaning Democrats and the Republicans In Name Only seriously need to go study Constitutional Law and re read the Constitution itself. Oh let me guess those crying have never read the Constitution nor the Federalist Papers nor tried to research Constitutional Law. Silly Liberals politics is for Mature Educated Adults not crying Children with Trump Derangement Syndrome.

      Trump's biggest legal problem isn't Mueller or an impeachment. His biggest challenge are the grand juries currently sitting in New York (Manhattan District Attorney) and Albany (State Attorney General) Counties in New York State looking into Trump's fraudulent business dealings. A state can indict a President and he cannot pardon himself for state crimes -- different sovereign entity. You want a Republic form of government? Well dual sovereignty is precisely that -- the states and/or the Feds can indict, prosecute, convict, and imprison independently without deference to the other. I would love to see Trump in Attica State Prison where he can talk about the great walls they use to build and how great it is to be among the common people. GO ORANGE.

        If Gavin Newsom has funds to fully fund Illegals before Fire Victims then Commiefornia does not need any Federal Funding! Seriously. He claims we have a $15 Billion Surplus of Funds but he chooses to fully fund Illegals before his own Legal Citizens. So yes I fully agree with President Trump on yanking Federal Funding! Which is the more important our own Legal Citizens in need or Illegal Immigrants?

The shutdown is a joke. It's a political stunt Trump is doing to appease his followers over his stupid wall. It's not the will of the People, it's the will of his supporters.

Besides...it's Mexico paying for the wall...

Good move - because the only thing otherwise being done in our state parks are people defecating.

    Agreed, perhaps our park employees in our area who have families can be paid. Doubt any of those criticizing them for not putting something away for a rainy day would show up one single day if the boss said, "Sorry - I don't know when I can pay you, but soon."

Appropriations laws forbid using these funds on national parks operations and maintenance.

The National Park Service move violates appropriations law since park fees collected under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act are designated towards visitor services, not towards operations and basic maintenance.

      The pedophiles that inhabit D.C., Hollywood, the Vatican and the Crown drink the hyper-adrenalized blood of their child victims.

      They torture these kids to hyper-adrenalize the blood, because it gives them a frantic, manic high. I guess it is like cocaine x 1000. They are addicted to this and need a steady supply of children to harvest this from.
      That is why 8,000,000 children disappear every year.

      The reason that they rape the children is because they are perverts.
      The reason that they kill them is to harvest the blood.

      Pocohantas and Occasional Cortex look like they just drank some.
      Hillary looks like she is Jonesin' for a fix. If you are a child and you see this evil bitch, looking like this, run for your life!

It is quite sad being the Left thinks of themselves as so educated and smart but they fail to remember.
People have been calling to seal the Border and Build The Wall since the 70's!! The problem has always been soft people who think it cannot happen to them. The problem has been Politicians who refuse to listen to their Constituents. The problem has been a demographic make up of Politicians who are Globalism Minded and want no Borders. The problem has been Voters allowing the Politicians to operate freely with absolutely no threats of recall or Class Action Law Suits for incompetence and misrepresentation. There are hundreds of more problems that can be named but nothing will change until the Voters decide enough is enough and they decide to vote out every Globalist and Socialist Politician in every State who is dragging everybody into the Globalist Minded Society. Globalism does NOT work. Look at Europe in shambles look at the UK and look at Venezuela!! Those regions are the future of California and this Nation unless you the Voter make a strong stand against the Liberal Progressive Socialist's now in Elected Offices in California and in all States.
