Driving families to state parks

State Senator Andre Jacque has spent time garnering interest from people on both sides of the aisle on legislation aiming to fill Wisconsin’s state parks. Jacque is circulating a bill for co-sponsors that would extend the Every Kid Outdoors national program from the Department of the Interior to Wisconsin State Parks. The program offers a free pass to national parks in the United States to fourth graders and their families. Jacque finds this to be an opportune time in a students’ life to learn about outdoor resources around the state, and follow other states’ lead in passing such legislation.



Jacque notes that it may pick up travel within the state, keeping tourism dollars in Wisconsin communities. 



The legislative proposal received 92% support when it went before Wisconsin’s Conservation Congress. Jacque is currently gathering co-sponsors in the assembly and the senate before formally introducing the bill. Information on the program can be found here.
