FUNDING STATE PARKS
TREAD SUPPORTS OUR STATE PARKS
TREAD supports our state parks and for there to be a permanent, consistent source of funding. There is now funding through taxes from the use, sale, storage and other activities relating to sporting goods, which is a great start to provide sustainability, but there is more to do. Access to public lands encourages public appreciation of open space while reducing trespass on private land.
The state of Texas continues to grow and we must continue the promotion and protection of our public parks and state historic sites. These special places are vital to our economy, heritage, culture and way of life. Providing reliable sources of funding for state parks and historic sites allows for maintenance, repairs and improvements on a regular basis insuring that these Texas treasures will continue to be appreciated and enjoyed for generations to come.
