Help Spread the Word

On Nov. 5, 2019, Texans voted overwhelmingly in support of Proposition 5, a constitutional dedication of revenue from the Sporting Good Sales Tax, so those dollars can only be used by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Texas Historical Commission on public parks and historic sites.

Importantly, Proposition 5 will provide the funding to achieve these goals without raising taxes or requiring additional fees. Thank you to everyone who voted in support of our state parks and historic sites. Learn more here.

State Park visitation is nearing 10 million visitors annually, with park revenues experiencing a nearly 40 percent increase in the last five years. But our park system is aging and infrastructure is outdated. As Texas continues to grow, we must #SupportTexasParks to give Texans access to the great outdoors. #Prop5onNov5 #ItsGoodforTexans
