Directs the Secretary of the Interior to report to specified congressional committees on the suitability and feasibility of:
(1) recovering the costs of high altitude rescues on Mt. McKinley, within Denali National Park and Preserve; and
(2) requiring climbers to provide proof of medical insurance prior to the issuance of a climbing permit by the National Park Service. Requires the report also to review the amount of fees charged for a climbing permit, and make any appropriate recommendations for changing the fee structure.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
