Montgomery, AL -(AmmoLand.com)- Alabamians have a chance on Nov. 8 to ensure all the funds earned at the parks will stay with the parks.
For the past five years, Alabama’s Legislature has raided the State Parks System’s budget in order to plug funding gaps for other agencies. This Amendment, if approved, would end that practice.
There are four Alabama state parks in the Black Belt – Lakepoint in Eufaula, Chewacla in Auburn, Lake Lurleen in Tuscaloosa and Blue Springs near Clio. Three others in the region were forced to close as a result of system cutbacks. Most of the money used by the parks comes from park visitor fees and payments from vendors. With the passage of Amendment 2, the parks will be able to reliably budget for the future and make much-needed renovations and repairs.
Visit the Alabama State Parks Partners website for more information, and remember to vote yes on Amendment 2!
