- The proposed Restore Our Parks Act would set aside up to $1.3 billion for national park maintenance each year until 2023, and the oil and gas industry is in full support. The money, which will be taken from unallocated federal revenues from oil, gas, coal, and renewable energy development on federal lands, will be paid every year until the 2023 fiscal year. Emily Douce, director of operations and park funding at the National Parks Conservation Association, said that the legislation shouldn’t be seen as a reason to support oil drilling on federal lands, though. “It’s not to incentivize oil and gas development, it’s to take existing royalties and put it back into public lands to address their maintenance needs.”
