"We promoted a slightly different idea, which was, Hey, we have a big infrastructure problem on the lands that we currently manage," Bernhard says. "We have a tremendous backlog in the Park Service, but also in the Refuge system and also in BLM. So we came up with a similar model, which is we take new revenue from all forms of energy and we use it to create a dedicated fund. The difference being that our dedicated fund was a mandatory spending obligation. So what that would do, is Congress wouldn't appropriate it on a yearly basis, it would just be a fund that we could utilize."
