I'm sorry to jump in here again, but I do not believe in these new fees.
We pay taxes to support basic governmental service of which I firmly
believe national parks and national forests are one. And the upkeep etc.
should be paid for out of our tax dollars not through use fee.
Otherwise soon all government services will be through use fees. Imagine
the costs of this for parents if school adopted this use fee policy.
So stand up and be counted as against this form of double taxation.
