WICHITA, Kan. (AP) The Kansas Wildlife and Parks secretary has an idea for getting more people to buy annual state park passes.
Robin Jennison wants to make it possible for Kansas residents to buy the passes at a reduced rate when they register cars and light trucks.
The Wichita Eagle reported that under his plan the annual passes would cost $15. They now cost up to $24.50 when they’re purchased at agency locations.
He hopes the Legislature will sign off on the idea next session.
Jennison shared his idea last week during the Kansas Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Commission meeting in Pratt. During the meeting, commissioners lowered the price of annual camping permits by $50 in hope of boosting sales. That means off-season permits will cost $150 and prime-season passes $200.
