The Director of the National Park Service (NPS) requested a decision concerning the availability of lump-sum appropriations to NPS for "planning and construction" and for "construction, improvements, repair or replacement of physical facilities." NPS may expend the lump-sum appropriations provided for planning and construction in the parks even though the expenditures for specific parks would exceed the amounts authorized to be appropriated for such parks.
