State Parks Director Resigns Amid Funding Scandal

According to the Sacramento Bee story, State Parks has been sitting on almost $55 MILLION cash surplus while they have been pleading they don't have the funding to keep the parks open. The threat of closure of 70 state park units has prompted shifting funding from other sources during the recently completed state budget process, including the taking funds from the state's Off-Highway Vehicle Fund.

The emerging funding scandal has prompted a more in-depth investigation to determine the full extent.

The link is to a Sacramento Bee article about the issue.
