Funding cuts could force state park closures in Ala.

(March 22, 2013) -- Some Alabama state parks could be in trouble, WAFF reports, explaining a bill drafted by the House would take money from the parks and put it in the general fund instead.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Some Alabama state parks could be in trouble, WAFF reports, explaining a bill drafted by the House would take money from the parks and put it in the general fund instead.

WAFF says these funding cuts would force some parks to shut down completely, others to close for part of the year, and most to lose certain facilities.

Specifically, WAFF reports covering a state shortfall means taking $5 million from the parks (for upkeep and repairs) and putting it toward the general fund.
