Theodore Roosevelt National Park: North Dakota is ground zero for the Bakken oil boom, and already drilling rigs can be seen from within the park. And even more could be built if a proposed bridge is permitted that could open up even more of the adjacent Little Missouri Grasslands (managed by the Forest Service) to oil and gas drilling. If such drilling decisions were turned over to North Dakota, they would likely be approved.
Our National Parks are awesome natural treasures. Many people have fought hard to create them, and they don’t deserve the treatment they might get under the Romney plan.
