Storm clouds are hovering over Connecticut state parks. On Tuesday, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy told environmental activists the state’s fiscal crisis will have an impact on the state’s park system. Connecticut is facing a $1.4 billion deficit.
“Real decisions have to be made about what we can and can’t afford. There are going to have to be some compromises,” Malloy told the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters conference. He promised, however, that the state would not “lose the crown jewels” of the park system.
For the record, the state DEEP is already turning down camping reservations for the spring and fall at Connecticut’s most popular camp sites.
