Proposed state constitutional amendment would prevent legislature from taking park revenues for the general fund.
Alabama Legislature Keep Your Hands OFF of our State Park money! Our Alabama State Parks are given very little money and must operate mainly on the fees they collect. Since you have chosen to take $30 million, we have had parks close and maintenance and upgrades put on the back burner. This is a disgrace and not fair to Alabamians and visitors to our state. 2015 saw record visitors to our parks. This is great for our state's economy. Think about the dollars also spent at gas stations, lodging, shopping, eating out and more!
