Bill Tracker

AB 1918 (Garcia ) Office of Sustainable Outdoor Recreation

Position:Watch
Status:Vetoed by Governor
Summary:

Would establish in the agency the Office of Sustainable Outdoor Recreation, and require the office to undertake certain activities such as promoting economic development and job growth in the outdoor recreation economy of the state.

Would also require the office to create an advisory committee to provide advice, expertise, support, and service to the office.

Comments:

To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 1918 without my signature.

This bill establishes the Office of Sustainable Outdoor Recreation within the California Natural Resources Agency to support the outdoor recreation economy.

The activities identified in this bill are important, but a new bureaucracy is not needed to accomplish the goal. Over the last few years the Department of Parks and Recreation has worked towards enhancing recreational opportunities throughout the state. In fact, Parks California, a support organization to the Department of Parks and Recreation, was recently created to promote outdoor recreation and is engaging in activities similar to those called for in this bill.

Sincerely,


Edmund G. Brown Jr.
