Legislative Agenda

As part of our role in advancing state parks issues for the last decade, California State Parks Foundation has provided leadership in lobbying the California legislature on relevant bills and budget actions as well as proactively sponsoring legislation. We have sponsored legislation to achieve park protection as well as facilitate fiscal sustainability for the state park system.

In addition to sponsoring legislation, we also maintain regular communication with key policy committee members and provides testimony to legislative hearings and coordinates with other like-minded organizations on policy priorities.
