St. Edward Park and our State Park System needs your immediate help.
Wednesday, January 27, 1:30 the Senate Natural Resource Committee will consider a bill that will permanently alter the sale and exchange of State Park Land by the State Parks Commission. Currently, a unanimous consent of the Commission is necessary for sale or exchange of State Lands. This bill would allow a vote of four (out of seven) to transact Park business ( including sale of property ). The bill will significantly lengthen the lease time to eighty years.
Action: Urgent: Contact following Senators: Natural Resource Committee. Hearing January 27, 2016 1:30 P.M.
Message: Oppose Senate Bill 6377. Our priceless heritage in State Park Lands should not be sold or exchanged by majority vote. Keep the unanimous vote requirement by Commissioners. Retain the 50 year lease.
