Cal state parks plan

Half Dome – Yosemite Musing

Would you pay $18 to keep the state parks open? In Nov you can vote on a proposal to collect such from your vehicle licensing fee. The initiative would raise an estimated $500 million annually. Your thoughts??

    That would be great on the face of it. The problem is the government has a history of ripping off recreation funding to keep alive other “essential services”.
    A tax is a tax. I’m a no vote.

      I agree. Altho we need to save the parks…pushing the fee onto drivers is not the way. The gov needs to learn how to run a biz…not cannibalize from one program to save another. Looks lke Meg Whitman may get a chance to run the show. But I don;t like people who “buy” the election.
