A Word about State Parks and Public Subsidies

An argument for private management of state public parks by Holly L. Fretwell (pictured) of PERC.

She explains, "Most state park systems are funded primarily by government appropriations and user fees. While national parks are dependent on congressional appropriations for more than 85 percent of  expenditures, only about 36 percent of the average state park system is funded by state general funds. the remainder is from park fees and special funds dedicated for park use."

More on this topic from a private-sector gentleman who manages public parks.
