"On July 1st, up to 70 of California’s 279 state parks may be closed due to budget cuts enacted by the Governor and Legislature. State park closures will erode California’s commitment and legacy to irreplaceable natural, cultural and historic resources. Additionally, closing state parks will impact California’s travel and tourism industry and reduce much-needed revenues for local businesses."

It gets more interesting as the video goes on, so give it a solid shot.
