Analysis: If passed, Biden infrastructure plan would likely include projects in NPs
President Biden's highly ambitious, and expensive, infrastructure proposal carries great possibilities for the worn and weary National Park System, though whether any will be realized is far from a sure thing. Indeed, with a keenly divided and divisive Congress it's not even a given that the $2 trillion proposal will gain acceptance, and most certainly not in its current form. Also unknown is how, or even if, the package would directly help the parks.
Indirectly, the package could help improve the air quality over national parks and possibly reduce climate-change impacts to the parks and their natural resources by addressing needs beyond park borders.
