Grateful Dead Drummer Mickey Hart Endorses California Prop 21 For State Parks
The famous musician is speaking up in support of California Prop 21 — a ballot measure that would add an $18 surcharge to California vehicles, providing the owners with free, year round access to state parks.
The new fee would apply to about 28 million cars and raise close to $500 million a year in a dedicated fund for the state’s 278 parks.
“California’s state parks are the very soul of our state but are on the brink of disaster. State parks are our heritage and incredibly important to protect and safe-keep for future generations.” says Hart.
