Thanks, you said it much better than I did. Where are they going to find that extra 30 million dollars now to balance the budget? The legislature is so short sighted that they don't realize they are not only losing the money directly generated by the park fees, but also the tax monies generated from money paid to restaurants, gas stations, and shopping to mention just a few. Then add the money it will cost to close the parks and then reopen them in a few years when they realize what a mistake it was.
