    Stan Dec is no Betty Little. At least Betty recognized the need for environmental protection in our area. Dec seems to be posturing to appeal to Washington more than serving the North Country. Wetlands need protection and funding Stan, whether the process is complicated or not. Change the process, not the funding.

    So there’s a grand total of $8,000,000 for all of this: “to fund trail maintenance and building work as well as to expand educational outreach on preparedness, safety, Leave No Trace education, inclusivity at frontcountry campgrounds and backcountry summits, and recreation infrastructure in Park Towns and Villages. This funding would also ensure that there are adequate temporary public bathroom facilities at trailheads and parking lots.”

    And there’s $29,000,000 for a new APA building. What’s wrong with the current building, and why can’t it be fixed or upgraded for less than $29,000,000? It’s nice to know where the priorities lay.
