Gov. Mead: Park Service correct to Revisit Yellowstone Winter Use
CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Governor Matt Mead says the National Park Service is doing the right thing by reinstituting the interim rule for winter use in Yellowstone National Park for the 2011/12 season so the Park Service can take more time to craft a permanent Winter Use Plan.
“It is important we get this Winter Use Plan right. The Park Service identified significant holes in the draft plan, some of which Wyoming raised in its comments to the Park Service. Our goal is to see the best outcome possible that will allow many opportunities for winter visits to Yellowstone,” Governor Mead said.
