Austin Chapter

More Funding for Texas Parks

Ballots have been tallied and voters have made it clear—state parks matter to the people of Texas! Proposition 14, which creates the Centennial Parks Conservation Fund, passed with overwhelming support from Texas voters.

“The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission extends its deepest gratitude to the people of Texas for voting to approve Proposition 14, which invests in the future extension of the state parks system,” said Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission Chairman Jeffery D. Hildebrand. “The passing of this amendment allows the department to make significant strides towards building out a best-in-class system of state-managed parks for future generations of Texans to enjoy.”

“Today marks the beginning of a new chapter for Texas State Parks thanks to the unwavering support from the Texans who voted to adopt Proposition 14,” said David Yoskowitz, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. “This historic vote confirms the value Texans place on conserving outdoor spaces for the enjoyment of all Texans.”
