Texans voted to approve Proposition 5 in the Nov. 5, 2019, election. Now 100 percent of the sporting goods sales tax will go to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Texas Historical Commission. This funding will help secure the future of local parks, state parks and historic sites for generations to come.
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the people of Texas for voting to approve Prop 5.
See what's in store for Texas State Parks.
