No Axe for California State Parks
Fearing the closure of their beloved state parks after Labor Day weekend, Californians went on a rampage. And rightfully so. As mentioned before in The State Park Terminator, Schwarzenegger’s plans to save the economy was to shut down about half of California’s state parks. But not without resistance from the voters. Now, the people have spoken.
Instead of releasing a closure list, the governor’s office announced today that the state parks will stay open. Good news, right? Well, it’s not all good. California’s huge deficit won’t just go away. For now, the parks will stay open on a limited schedule, some only on weekends, some only during certain seasons. So the fight is not over. Keep writing in those letters and making those calls if you want your voices heard.
