Default California Signs First Pact to Keep Parks Open

California State Parks officials on Wednesday (Dec. 19) signed an agreement to use matching funds to ensure Henry Coe State Park near Gilroy will stay open for two years.

The agreement is the first signed by the California Department of Parks and Recreation under the terms of AB 1478.


The new state law, adopted in September in the wake of a scandal in the department, allocates $10 million for matching grants to keep state parks open, the Sacramento Bee reported.


The money comes from the $54 million in surplus funds that former parks headquarters officials were found in July to have hidden for years, even as state budget cuts led to park closures.


Henry Coe, at more than 87,000 acres of mountain peaks and oak-studded wilderness, is the largest state park in Northern California and the second-largest in the state.

This is exactly why I vote against any tax increases. These yoyo's were able to hide $54 million? And the state is almost bankrupt?
At least they found the money, here in Louisiana it would have disappeared.

I've seen too many times where our state or local government frantically pushes for a new tax increase which fails then they miraculously find money somewhere.
