How about rather than taking away free park passes for officials, the state simply offer free entrance to our State Parks for everyone?

It is OUR land. It doesn't belong to the politicians and the bureaucrats.

ALL public lands held by the public for recreation or historical signifigance should be able to be accessed free by the citizens of the United States.

If you use a state campground that offers services like garbage collection, full water and electric hookups for RV's, playgrounds for the kids, etc. etc. then a token fee charged to users of those services, to cover the expenses incurred, is fine by me.

Simply accessing public lands to admire the scenery, visit historic sites, take a drive, hike the backcountry, or primitive camping on public lands should be entirely free of charge to the citizens of the United States of America.
