Parks funding in Texas is a struggle–but we already have a solution. Twenty-six years ago, the Texas Legislature provided for parks funding with a sales tax on sporting goods sales (including bicycles). Unfortunately, the money that should have been going toward parks has since often been rerouted for other purposes.
Prop 5, on the ballot this November 5, would ensure that these dedicated funds would go to the parks and historical sites they were intended for, to keep them maintained and safe for the 10 million visitors to Texas parks every year.
