The U.S. House of Representatives approved Congressman Visclosky’s legislation to designate the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore as a National Park.

The House approved the legislation, H.R. 1488, the Indiana Dunes National Park Act, by unanimous consent. The measure is now awaiting consideration by the U.S. Senate. During House consideration, Congressman Pete Visclosky stated, “The American taxpayers over a number of generations have invested in the preservation of the Indiana Dunes. It is incumbent that we do everything possible to encourage citizens and travelers from around the world to visit the park to learn, recreate, and simply enjoy the sublime environment of the Northwest Indiana lakeshore. H.R. 1488 helps to achieve this goal.”
