House Challenges US Forest Service Over Closure of Privately-Funded Parks and Campgrounds

I received a copy of this letter on Friday.  It is a letter from the House Natural Resources Committee to the head of the US Forest Service Tom Tidwell, threatening investigations and hearings over closures of privately-funded, concession-operate parks in the Forest Service.  Click to enlarge either page.

    Good. Take no prisoners.

    Not as good as insisting they re-open, but at least a start.

    Have concessionaires considered forming a trade group, or other steps to combine their voice? Possibly as a group you could even get lobbying support in DC. This administration seems respond to those who can afford to buy "pull" rather than based on doing what is right.
