The House also passed H.R. 1068 in a 409-0 vote. This bill would update the portion of the U.S. Code dealing with the National Park System.

Specifically, it takes portions of U.S. law dealing with the management of the National Park System that are spread throughout title 16 of U.S. code, and puts them all into one place within title 16. It also restates the Park Service provisions as a new "positive law title" in the U.S. code.
