Your Call 092909 What comes next for California's state parks?

What comes next for California's state parks? On the next Your Call we'll talk about the deal that averted a state park closure in California. Locked gates at hundreds of parks across the state has been delayed for at least one more year, but what comes next? How will the parks cut an additional $22 million from their budget? In his new PBS series, Ken Burns calls the National Parks America's Best Idea, but across the country fees are rising and hours are shrinking. What are you willing to do to keep state parks public? It's Your Call with Sandip Roy and you.
