    Thank you for contacting me about the government shutdown and its effect on access to the Olympic National Park. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

    Dear Pearl Rains,

    Thank you for contacting me about the government shutdown and its effect on access to the Olympic National Park. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

    Like you, one of the reasons I enjoy living in our region is because I value our proximity to – and access to – the national park. There wasn’t a summer of my childhood that didn’t involve going up to Hurricane Ridge or hiking throughout the park. I fully understand the importance of access to the wilderness here for residents, visitors, and local businesses that benefit from tourism.

    A government shutdown caused roughly half of the government’s civilian workforce, about 800,000 employees, to face furloughs. The nation’s national parks that are operated by the National Park Service (NPS) were closed for the duration of the shutdown and over 100 NPS employees that staff the Olympic National Park were furloughed. According to the National Park Service, the shutdown came at a price tag of $78 million per day. What’s more, the shutdown kept visitors from being able to enjoy these extraordinary assets. And in some rare cases, as you know, a few people that visited the park while it was closed were issued Citations.

    The whole situation is unfortunate. It’s unfortunate that the government was shutdown, that workers were furloughed, and that the park was closed. It’s unfortunate that professionals who serve as rangers to help people visit the park – not to keep them away from it – were put in a position by this Congress to have to keep people out of the park. And it’s unfortunate that citations were issued to a handful of people who wanted to visit the park.

    I have asked the Park Service to review its policies in this regard. Because the people who received violations have said that they will contest this in court, I am limited — under the separation of powers, which provides for an independent judiciary — in my ability to weigh in on these particular cases. However, I am not prohibited from reviewing these rules and identifying whether changes need to be made going forward.. Obviously, the main change that needs to be made is that Congress needs to do its job and avoid these shutdowns in the future.

    After sixteen painful days our government has reopened and we have averted a default on our nation’s financial obligations. Going forward, we need a balanced, strategic approach to dealing with our nation’s budget issues – not political games and manufactured crises.

    I voted in support of the agreement that ended the shutdown and reopened national parks. I am pleased that the tourists and regular visitors in our region can now continue to enjoy the Olympic National Park.

    When I travel around our region, the thing I hear from folks more than anything else is that they want Congress to put aside the partisan garbage and start functioning again. That’s what I want too. We need to get Americans back to work. We need to get Congress back to work too. I’ll keep at it!

    I encourage you to continue to share your views with me on this topic or any other issue. Thank you for reaching out. It is an honor to serve as your representative.

    Sincerely,

    Derek Kilmer
    Member of Congress

  • Bother Public Servants?

    Regarding my tenacity and bother on “Clouded Waters” and “Sue and Settle”, from Jan 25, 2013 to date.

    Bottom Line
    THEY BOTHER ME…. I BOTHER THEM

    History
    It started with an email from DC … on Jan 25, 2013.
    Start looking for a “white paper” online within one of the congressional committee programs titled: Clouded Waters
    Is a compilation within the legislative neighborhood the history of how we got stuck with all these overarching regulations…the face behind the story. Sounds like some pretty good stuff.

    BY DEFINITION PUBLIC SERVANT – someone who holds a government position (either by ELECTION or APPOINTMENT)

    THE PEOPLE, IN DELEGATING AUTHORITY, DO NOT GIVE THEIR PUBLIC SERVANTS THE RIGHT TO DECIDE WHAT IS GOOD FOR THE PEOPLE TO KNOW AND WHAT IS NOT GOOD FOR THEM TO KNOW.

    THEY BOTHER ME…. I BOTHER THEM.

    Since that time, 9 months ago, all hell has broken loose. Who knew that the EPA was engaged in, what is now know, as Sue and Settle?

    BIG PLAYERS HAVE STEPPED IN, THE EPA IS GETTING SUED BY STATES TO RELEASE FOI AND MORE.
