Delaney opposes proposed park fees

February 3rd, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) has written to National Park Service officials requesting that park-wide fees not be established at the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park. In his letter to Jon Jarvis, Director of the National Park Service and Kevin Brandt, Superintendent of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park, Delaney stated, “I am opposed to park-wide fees because of the possibility that they will create undue financial hardship on local residents and limit the overall economic impact of the park.” Delaney added, “I believe that the challenges facing the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park are best addressed through the budget and appropriations process. I stand at the ready to work with park and NPS officials to request additional federal resources for the park or fight for a larger share of funding for our park in the NPS budget.”
