Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill requires the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry to issue free group exemption passes for day use at state parks and historic sites to organizations serving the disabled. These passes allow people with disabilities, and those assisting them, to gain admission free of charge to all state parks and historic sites for visits arranged by these organizations. This will reduce revenue to the General Fund by an estimated $85,155 in fiscal year 2016-17.
