The latest on California politics and government

TRAVEL CALIF PARKS032.JPGFor serving the country, California active-duty soldiers or war veterans could use state parks for free on Memorial Day and Veterans Day under newly proposed legislation.

Republican Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen of Modesto proposed the measure, Assembly Bill 150.

The bill would require participants to be California residents and to show current military identification or proof of honorable discharge.

Park entrance fees also would be waived for anyone riding in the same vehicle as the participating armed services member or veteran.
