A group that wants state lawmakers to restore funding for parks is asking the public to get involved.
Tonight in Dallas, “Keep Texas Parks Open” will hold a town hall meeting. The group is holding town halls in six other cities this week.
Group director Ian Davis says they’re calling on lawmakers to dedicate money from the sales tax on sporting goods to parks, which is what the tax money was originally supposed to be used for.
The tax is expected to generate about $265 million for the next two- year budget.
