Texas legislators stood ready this year to make investments in our state park system, just in time for the 100th anniversary of the creation of the State Parks Board.

Lawmakers filed a number of bills this session that would create new funding streams for parkland acquisition and conservation. Ultimately, legislation authored by Sen. Tan Parker, R-Flower Mound, and sponsored by Rep. Armando Walle, D-Houston, made it through the process, receiving over 80 percent support from lawmakers in each chamber.

This legislation will create the Centennial Parks Conservation Fund, pending voter approval of its attached proposition in the November constitutional amendment election.
