Various groups and individuals around the state are pushing to get a measure on the ballot this November that would prevent the Arizona State Legislature from taking money from the Arizona State Parks budget.

Arizona State Park Foundation Executive Director Cristie Statler, right, meets with a group of area residents at the Cottonwood Recreation Center on Thursday, May 31, to discuss efforts to push forward a ballot measure which would prevent funds generated by the state parks from being redirected to other parts of the state budget. The state parks system currently receives no money from Arizona’s general fund.Organizers are out and about right now trying to collect the signatures needed to get the Arizona Natural Resources Protection Act before voters later this year.

The act, brainstormed a few months ago, is being promoted by groups like the Arizona State Parks Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded to support and assist the state park system.

The act was created in response to the Legislature slashing the parks’ budget by millions of dollars over the past few years in an effort to deal with other problems throughout the state budget.
