CAPITOL COMMENT: Huff Urges Attorney General to Investigate State Parks Officials

The Senate Republican leader said that $20 million in funding was found at the same time parks officials were closing state parks.

Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff urges California Attorney General Kamala Harris to take action against the California Parks and Recreation leadership related to $20 million in "secret funds" the agency allegedly put away.

In his most recent Capitol Comment, Huff, whose district includes Diamond Bar and Walnut, said that one year has passed since investigators in the attorney general's office reportedly discovered the funds. 

At the same time the money was found, the park service had been closing parks, he said.

Huff alleges that this is a misuse of taxpayer funds and publicly calls for Harris to respond to a letter the state Senate and Assembly Republican leadership sent to her urging an investigation into other funding abuses.

Huff represents the 29th Senate District covering portions of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties. Follow Senator Huff on Twitter @bobhuff99.
