Save Our State Parks initiative

For those watching the November 2010 ballot, last week over 760,000 petition signatures were turned in to state officials to place the “Save Our State Parks” initiative on the November ballot.  434,000 valid signatures are needed.  

The concept is to take the funding of state parks out of the state’s annual budget and replace it with a trust account funded by an $18 annual vehicle fee on most vehicles.  Vehicles that have paid the fee would then have no entry charge as at present.  

Sorry if this story has already been passed on.  I’m been away and did not see one.
