Conservation and National Parks
Bernie Sanders strongly believes in strengthening our laws and programs that protect wilderness and national parks, wildlife habitat, and endangered species. In 2015, he introduced the Rebuild America Act. For years, we have underfunded the parks that provide recreational opportunities for all Americans and that help preserve our nation’s history, heritage and natural wonders. Our federal, state and local parks systems now face a $100 billion funding gap for deferred maintenance and much needed upgrades.The Rebuild America Act will invest $3 billion a year to improve our National Parks, Monuments, Heritage Areas and Landmarks for current and future generations to enjoy.
