Paterson Bill Would Re-Open State Parks

New York Governor David Paterson will introduce a bill today that would re-open state parks in time for Memorial Day, and keep them open for the entire year.

Parks including Long Point State Park in Bemus Point and the Quaker Lake swim area at Allegany State Park have been closed since last Monday in a cost-costing measure.

In order to re-open the parks, the Legislature would have to agree to take $6 million from the Environmental Protection Fund to pay the parks.
