BISMARCK – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND), member of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, joined his colleagues in introducing the Protecting Access to Recreation with Cash (PARC) Act, which would require all national parks to accept cash as a form of payment for entrance fees.
“I may be biased, but one of the nation’s best opportunities to get outside and enjoy natural beauty is Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota. Our national parks belong to the American people and access shouldn’t depend on whether visitors can use a credit card at the entrance booth. Cash is still legal tender in the United States, and the National Park Service should recognize it as such,” said Senator Cramer.
Joining Senator Cramer are U.S. Senators Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), John Barasso (R-WY), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Mike Crapo (R-ID), and James Risch (R-ID).
