Existing law requires the Department of Parks and Recreation to issue a park pass for free use of all park facilities in the state park system to veterans. This bill would additionally exempt these veterans from any requirement to pay a reservation fee.

Position Statement

AB 150 (Olsen) Chapter 688, Statutes of 2013 allows veterans or active duty and reserve military personnel of any state to have free day use of any state park on Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Providing free access for veterans and active military personnel on dedicated days in California was a first step toward increasing access for Californians, and recognizes the contributions of military personnel and families.
