Visclosky Announces House Committee Approval of the Indiana Dunes National Park Act
Washington, DC – Today, the House Committee on Natural Resources approved Congressman Pete Visclosky’s legislation to designate the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore as a National Park.  The Committee approved the legislation, H.R. 1488, the Indiana Dunes National Park Act, by unanimous consent.  The measure is now referred to the full House and is expected to be considered in the coming months.  Specifically, H.R. 1488 would retitle the “Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore” as the “Indiana Dunes National Park”.  The designation would create the first National Park in Indiana and the 60th National Park in the United States.  The initial effort to name this area as a National Park began in 1916 under the first Director of the National Park Service, Mr. Stephen Mather.  The National Park designation would provide greater recognition of this august Northwest Indiana attraction with the intent of drawing more visitors to the region and stimulating the local economy.
