After all, the public lands under its jurisdiction – and under the Department of Agriculture with respect to National Forest land – represent vast resources upon which our economic prosperity depends.

Today we meet to review the administration of the National Park Service and to examine the President’s 2016 Budget request. I thank Director Jarvis for being here today. Our National Parks are a uniquely American institution. The Norman and Plantagenet kings of old set aside vast tracts of land as their exclusive province, in which only a select few with their blessing could enjoy. The National Parks are the very opposite of that. In America, we have set aside the most beautiful land in the nation entirely of, by and for the people.

When we send our soldiers into harm’s way, we have a solemn obligation to back them with the full might and resources our country can muster and to give them the widest possible latitude for action.

I will not vote for the authorization as the President proposes.
