House Dem, Bernhardt at odds over use of fee monies to cover shutdown costs at NPs

U.S. Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva, who chairs the House Natural Resource Committee, wants Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to explain his use of a dedicated revenue stream as a "slush fund" to supplement the National Park Service's general operating budgets.

What the Arizona Democrat is getting at is how Bernhardt OKed the use of Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act dollars to be used by the Park Service early this year to pay for custodial staff and routine maintenance during the partial government shutdown.
