Hospitality industry seeks bigger role in national parks

WASHINGTON — Companies that operate visitor services in national parks are pushing the Trump administration to outsource more work to the private sector, The Hill reported today.

The hospitality industry is betting that President Trump’s desire to cut the National Park Service’s (NPS) budget, combined with the GOP’s long-standing goal of moving federal functions to the private sector, presents an opportunity to make inroads in campgrounds, fee collection and other services at parks.

The administration appears receptive. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke brought up campgrounds at a recent event, saying he doesn’t think the NPS should be in the business of running them.

The full story can be found at The Hill.
