Dear State Senator ____________ or State Representative _____________,
My name is ______________, I live in ____________, and I am your constituent.
I write to ask you to
oppose all proposals to divert funding from the Passport to the Parks to non-park purposes, or create exemptions
. Please keep the Passport to the Parks intact in the FY 20-21 State Budget!
The Passport program is doing what it was designed to do – keep State Parks well-maintained and safe to attract visitors, revenues, and jobs to Connecticut.
Any exemptions that allow certain groups to avoid the DMV registration charge of only $5/year per vehicle would be unwise, unfair, and would invite more exemptions in the future. State Parks generate revenues that benefit all Connecticut residents even if they never visit them personally, so it’s fair that we all contribute to their well-being.
The Passport supports better maintained parks and free entry at the gates for all Connecticut residents. That is a great value for Connecticut, so please keep the Passport intact in the FY 20-21 state budget with no diversions and no exemptions.
Thank you for your consideration,
-Your name + Town
