Possible Hope For Some State Parks

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA– There may be hope for some California parks.

With 70 California state parks being threatened to close because of budget cuts, the state Assembly has unanimously approved legislation making it easier for nonprofit groups to take over operations at some parks.

With little debate, AB-42 passed 67-0 Thursday and was sent to the Senate.

Last week state park officials announced that $33 million in budget cuts passed by the Legislature in March would force it to close 70 of California’s 278 parks, beaches and historic areas around the state as of July 2012. California State Parks also said they would seek partnerships to keep some open.

Railtown 1897 State Historic Park in Jamestown was included in the list of California State Parks proposing to close. Columbia State Park and Calaveras Big Trees State Park were not included on the closure list.
