State Parks and Forests: Funding
The study focused on state funding for state parks and forests. It compared park/forest use and revenue trends to funding levels and overall system expenditures. An assessment of whether funding has been adequate to support short- and long-term operational needs of parks and forests was made.
The study concept was approved by the committee on June 7, 2013, which approved the study scope on September 26, 2013. Also at that meeting, update material was provided to the committee members, after which a public hearing on the study topic was held. (Testimony by Hearing Date).
PRI staff presented staff draft findings and proposed recommendations for this study to the committee on January 23, 2014, which the committee approved that same day.
