Senate Bill 18 (de León) gives California voters the oppurunity in June 2018 to voice their support local, regional and state parks and drought, water, parks, climate, coastal protection, and outdoor access for all programs. Now is the time to reinvest in California’s natural and historic infrastructure – including significant investments into California’s state park system. Unfortunately, with an aging state park infrastructure, our parks continue to need critical repairs that will keep them available and well maintained. It has been 15 years since California voters approved the last legislatively crafted park bond Proposition 40.
CSPF supports both park bond bills, Assembly Bill 18 (Garcia) and Senate Bill 5 (de León). Ultimately only one of these bond bills will be delivered to the Governor’s desk for approval before California voters in 2018 could be asked to support their state parks.
