National Park or Parking Lot? Senators Re-introduce Bill

U.S. Senator Hagan (D-NC) joined U.S. Senator Burr (R-NC) in a legislative move to withdraw national park protections for baby birds and sea turtles endangered by off-road vehicles. The bill, S. 1557, seeks to subvert a consent decree for ORV management at Cape Hatteras National Seashore agreed to as “fair and just” by all parties — including ORV enthusiasts and Dare County, N.C.–before U.S. District Court Judge Terrence Boyle on April 30, 2008. More details are in the release.
