Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Currently, most vehicles entering state parks must have a vehicle admission
receipt (sticker), either for annual use or for one-day use. Some vehicles are exempt
from having a sticker, including vehicles operated by a unit of government, vehicles
occupied by an adult holding a conservation patron license, vehicles occupied by a
person who holds a senior citizen recreation card, and vehicles operated for
transporting pupils of a public or private school. This bill adds to those exemptions
vehicles occupied by a resident who is a veteran with a 70 percent or greater
military-related disability and vehicles occupied by a resident who was a prisoner
of war.
Currently, a fee is charged for admission to Heritage Hill State Park and to state
trails. There are exemptions from the admission fee, including persons who hold a
senior citizen recreation card and adults holding a conservation patron license. This
bill adds to those exemptions residents who are veterans with a 70 percent or greater
military-related disability and residents who were prisoners of war.

For further information see the state and local fiscal estimate, which will be
printed as an appendix to this bill.
