Californians! Don't Let the Governor Terminate the Parks!

The budget cuts proposed under Governor Schwarzenegger's latest plan would include some hefty cuts to the state parks department. This would result in 48 parks across California being closed down!




The International Mountain Bicycling Association has some information on their website , including a link to email legislators and the Governor that you disapprove of this. There isn't any word on what would happen to the parks onces they're closed, but you got to figure if the state needs money, chances are they'll be sold off to private developers. Not cool.

    It sounds like he is on a rampage: talks about how he followed up this news by "urging the California Coastal Commision to approve the 241-toll road extension, which, if completed, would run through San Onofre State Park".

    After a long, long day of discussion and deliberation, the California Coastal Commission (CCC) voted against the proposed toll road through San Onofre State park.. There was an unprecedented turnout of over 2,000 people at the CCC hearing yesterday. with a strong showing of supporters from both sides.  The meeting began around 9am and a decision was finally rendered around 11:30pm!  It was a long, arduous process for everyone involved, but at the end of the day, it proved to be an important, precendent setting decision.  Although this gives opponents of the proposed toll road a stronger foothold, the battle is far from over.  The TCA  will likely appeal the decision to the federal government and the battle will continue. 



    No matter where you stand on the issue, one can't help but take pride in participating in the democratic process.  It was an incredible experience that I won't soon forget.
