Local lawmaker backs measure creating fee to fund state parks

A bill now awaiting action by the state Senate seeks to provide for the fiscal sustainability of state parks.  The bill would allow people to make a voluntary opt-out $5 donation to state parks when they renew motor vehicle registration. 

 

Redding Representative John Shaban introduced an amendment to create a type of lockbox for the funds, and the amendment was approved for add on to the proposed bill.  He cautioned that whether that mechanism will finally protect this “dedicated” fund is still unknown. 

 

State Senator Ted Kennedy Junior notes that Governor Malloy's proposed budget calls for a $2 million dollar cut to state parks.

 

The Motor Transport Association of Connecticut is concerned.  President Mike Riley says the bill represents a raid on the Transportation Fund.
