State Parks Ballot Measure

Sacramento, CA – A ballot measure that would create an $18 vehicle licensing surcharge has garnered the needed signatures to qualify for the November election.

If approved by voters, the fee would help fund California’s state parks and wildlife programs. It would also allow California residents to enter state parks for free.

The initiative would raise an estimated $500 million annually. The money would go into a newly created trust fund and would be subject to an annual audit and review by a citizen’s oversight committee.
