Despite official damper, Indiana lawmakers press on for redesignation of Indiana Dune NL as NP

Lorelei Weimer, executive director of Indiana Dunes Tourism, said it’s pure coincidence that the tourism organization released a series of five videos on YouTube promoting the dunes the same week that P. Daniel Smith, interim director of the National Park Service, testified before a U.S. Senate committee on why the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore shouldn’t be reclassified as a national park.

Still, the timing couldn’t be better and Weimer and other supporters of the change, which the U.S. House of Representatives passed unanimously last year, share the belief that the legislation will still clear the U.S. Senate with the support of that chamber.
