California State Parks Under Stress

Hosted by

Governor Brown has proposed closing 70 of California's 279 state parks to save $22 million. About 30 will now be saved. Three of those will turn campgrounds, restaurants and maintenance operations over to private contractors. Twenty-five more are in negotiations. How can the contractors make a profit? Will the services be a shadow of what the state used to provide? Also, Pomona may shut down all its city libraries, and Tesla is producing electric cars in California -- "from the top down." On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, the Southern Baptist Convention makes history.
