Mead Signs YNP Fee Resolution | Big Horn Basin Media

Yellowstone Fee Resolution Approved by Governor

Written by on March 14, 2018

Wyoming will seek an agreement with U.S. Interior Department and National Park Service officials about collecting a fee at Yellowstone National Park to fund wildlife conservation efforts in the states surrounding the park.
Gov. Matt Mead on Monday signed a joint resolution passed by the state Legislature earlier calling for discussions about the fees.
Proponents say the idea is to generate money for Wyoming, Montana and Idaho to deal with issues like wildlife collisions, disease and migration routes.
The Wyoming resolution, which also involves Grand Teton National Park, does not specify how the fee would be assessed or what the amount would be. Since only the federal government oversees fees in national parks, the resolution seeks to start a conversation between the three states and the federal agencies.
