CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Reno Assemblyman David Bobzien says state parks will need investment from the Nevada Legislature during the upcoming session because there's no precedent to suggest parks can be self-sustaining.

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources outlined its budget plan for state parks Tuesday during a hearing before legislative money committees. About a third of the total $24 million budget proposal comes from the state general fund.

The budget submitted by Gov. Brian Sandoval calls for $7,000 to restore a State Parks Training Academy centered on staff training in customer service and teamwork. Additional items include restoration of a maintenance position in southern Nevada, a push for expanding sales outlets and exploring sponsorship arrangements.
