State Parks Debate- Should They Be Privatized?

Should State Parks Be Privatized?

MYFOXNY.COM - As with every state agency, the New York State Parks Department is dealing with a slashed budget. The department oversees 35 historic sites and 178 parks, including golf course and beaches.

Fox 5 explores the spirited debate about whether New York should explore privatization as a way to save money at state parks.

Geoffrey Croft of NYC Park Advocates, a nonprofit watchdog group, discussed the issue with Leonard Gilroy, of Reason Foundation, a nonprofit think tank. Croft doesn't support privatizing state parks, but Gilroy says public-private partnerships could generate money for the state.
