Protect Alabama’s State Park Revenue – Vote “Yes” on Amendment 2
On November 8, voters in Alabama will be presented with Amendment 2. and be given the choice of ensuring revenue generated by the State Park System is properly invested in the maintenance and operation of these parks. This measure was approved by the legislature’s approval of Act 2016-145.
ASCE supports immediate and sustained action to reinvest in our park systems. This action should consider both protection of our national heritage and enhancement of the experience of park visitors. ASCE also believes that monies collected through on-site user fees and concessionaire agreements should be available to be used for on-site maintenance, operations and enhancements.
Amendment 2 will read as follows:
“Proposing an amendment to Amendment 617 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to allow the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources the option to provide for the operation and management, by non-state entities, of hotels, golf courses, and restaurants at any applicable state parks in Alabama. (Proposed by Act 2016-145)
Yes ( ) No ( )”
Why Vote “Yes”?
Alabama recently saw the closure of 5 State Parks at the end of 2015 reducing the number of state parks to just 17. These Parks were shuttered because their operating costs exceeded their revenue.
A “yes” vote may help prevent the closure of additional parks by ensuring the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has a dedicated and protected revenue source. When you talk with friends, family and neighbors about the election, remember this:
- ASCE supports reinvestment in the deteriorating infrastructure of parks, monuments, battlefields, and other preserves.
- ASCE believes that monies collected through on-site user fees and concessionaire agreements should be available to be used for on-site maintenance, operations, and enhancements.
- Amendment 2 secures and safeguard Alabama’s Park System revenue without raising taxes.
The measure was approved with near unanimous votes by both chambers of the state legislature. Leading support comes from Alabama State Parks Partners.
