You may soon be required to pay an entrance fee to enter a state owned park. State representatives approved the measure but Morris Republican Pam Roth voted "No," claiming there's no guarantee the state will use the money for park upkeep.
Roth says she understands the need for revenue.
Both motorists and pedestrians will be required to pay the fee, which will help the Department of Natural Resources supplement its income.
The DNR has lost about 58-million dollar in funding over the last decade. The entrance fees are expected to bring in at least nine-million dollars a year. The bill is headed to the Senate.
