Restore Our Parks and Public Lands ActThis bill establishes the National Park Service and Public Lands Legacy Restoration Fund into which, through FY2020-FY2024, there shall be deposited an amount equal to 50% of all energy development revenues due to the federal government from oil, gas, coal, or alternative or renewable energy development on federal lands and waters. Deposited amounts must not exceed $1.3 billion for any fiscal year.
From such amounts
- 80% shall be allocated to the National Park Service for high-priority deferred maintenance projects, ensuring parity between transportation and nontransportation projects;
- 10% shall be for the national wildlife refuge system maintenance backlog;
- 5% shall be for the public access and recreation backlog on public lands; and
- 5% shall be for school construction and deferred maintenance backlogs.
The Department of the Interior must submit to Congress, with the President's annual budget submission, a list of projects receiving allocations from the fund and a description of each such project. Interior, and other specified agencies, may accept cash or in-kind donations that advance efforts to reduce maintenance backlogs and encourage public-private partnerships.
