BILL NUMBER:S4675

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the parks, recreation and historic preservation law, in
relation to waiving pavilion rental fees for recognized veterans'
organizations

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 permits any recognized veterans' organization to rent any
pavilion at state parks, other state recreational facilities and
historic sites, without the payment of any fees or charges.

Section 2 contains the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
We have no greater obligation than to honor and thank our veterans for
their service to our nation, whether in times of peace or in times of
war. Given the personal sacrifices our veterans have made, waiving
the rental fee for Veteran's organization to utilize state parks
pavilions is small gesture for the work they do every day protecting
and securing our freedoms.

S.5885 of 2009/2010

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Effective immediately.
