STATE PARKS GET SHAFT, AGAIN

Austin lawmakers are once again hammering one of the state’s most citizen-relevant agencies, Texas Parks & Wildlife, over funding. The Star-Telegram reports that politicking masquerading as budgeting is denying the agency access to a badly needed $46 million at a time when the state’s parks are hitting the early stages of advanced neglect. Hey, Gov. Perry and anyone else listening: These parks are Texas heritage. Free up the money and stop hiding behind bean-counter excuses. Do you really have to be told?
