Assembly Bill 1918 establishes in the Natural Resources Agency the Office of Sustainable Outdoor Recreation, supporting activities that promote economic development and job growth of the outdoor recreation economy in California. With more than 67 million visits made from Californians and out-of-state tourists alike, California’s state park system is an economic engine. Park visitors spends $3.2 billion annually on goods and services such as food, lodging, supplies and more that contribute a total economic impact of $6.41 billion annually when visitor spending, operating expenses and purchases of good and services that support parks and related businesses are included.
