Press Release

Washington, D.C.—Congressman Tom Marino (PA-10) issued the following statement after learning the House Committee on Natural Resources passed, with unanimous consent, H.R.3620, a bill to amend the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area Improvement Act to provide access to certain vehicles serving residents of municipalities adjacent to the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area:

“While I wish this bill would have passed committee earlier, I am thankful to my colleagues on the committee for recognizing its importance. It is now on its way to the House Floor for votes. I am confident that it will pass with broad bipartisan support. The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area is a Pennsylvania treasure and a national gem, my colleagues in the House know that. Due to my efforts bringing together the National Park Service and local stakeholders to draft this bill extending the exemption for commercial traffic, a final resolution to this issue is in sight.”
