Senate subcommittee hears long list of complaints about overcrowding in NPs

A litany of problems -- from troubles entering Glacier National Park and overwhelmed businesses to natural resource impacts and declining visitor experiences -- were raised Wednesday as the Senate Subcommittee on National Parks waded into the challenging dilemma of overcrowding at some of the top destinations in the National Park System.

From the outset, Sen. Angus King, a Maine independent who chairs the subcommittee, made it clear he wasn't looking for the hearing to produce well-defined solutions to the problems, but rather gain a broader understanding of the problems with a goal of strategically developing solutions.
