The National Park Service will allow an extra month for comments from the public on a proposal that would almost double visitor fees at 17 national parks, according to the National Park Service.

The deadline for comments was through Thanksgiving, but has been extended to Dec. 22, according to the Park Service.

Democrats and national park groups had said Congress should pay for infrastructure repairs, not the public, according to the Washington Examiner.

The proposal would increase the cost per vehicle at the Grand Canyon from $30 to $70. Other parks would raise prices during the busiest months, such as May through September at Zion and Arches in Utah, when prices would increase from $25 to $70, the Examiner reported.

The proposal to raise fees was announced in October, the Examiner reported.
