How are budget restraints effecting national and state parks?



  1. 0 Votes

    On the state level, some are worse than others.  For example, California is facing heavy budget cuts, forcing them to consider closing many of their state parks.  Governor Schwarzenegger has stated that as many as 220 state parks, beaches, and reserves may have to be shut down until their is sufficient funding. 

    National parks, although not facing immediate closure like state parks, are not receiving the government funding they want either.  Many of their branches are literally crumbling to the ground and the government is not doing anything to help them rebuild.  Instead they put money into new projects, without any moves to help restore the old ones.
