LATEST SENATOR KING
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) pressed Acting Director of the National Park Service Michael T. Reynolds on the U.S. Interior Department’s recent decision to suspend all National Park Advisory Commissions across the country, including Acadia National Park’s in Maine. In his remarks, Senator King highlighted the importance of the commission for Acadia and its surrounding communities, emphasizing that the decision to suspend it was shortsighted and removed critical local input.
“I do think it’s very important for any national lands, but particularly for national parks, for the area to have a voice in the activities and provide information to the National Park Service and to the local park,” Senator King said.
