This list makes me sick. Ultimately, the only way we are going have a chance keeping these parks alive is through a fee based system. That's the only way it's going to work...pay as you go. California is broke and once these parks close, it will be very difficult to re-appropriate funds to re-open them. This is the new reality for the Golden State.
A couple of more thoughts:
1) I agree this list is fluid, and I expect the "greenies" to pressure the State to keep some of their crown jewel parks on this list at the expense of some of the OHV parks not yet on the list. I expect it to grow.
2) Then again, I wouldn't be amazed to see the "greenies" put so much pressure on Arnold that he caves to all of them.
3) I heard that this will only save $71 million...a drop in the bucket compared to the $24 billion shortfall.
4) Are our green sticker fees toast...gone, stolen?
