Collecting funds for forests a simple and fair solution
Protesting reasonable user fees for Coronado National Forest is like protesting Albertson's or Safeway because they have the audacity to (gasp) ask you to pay for the food you take from their respective establishments.
Lands held in the public trust cost money to maintain. The money has to come from somewhere. Asking the people who use the land to support the cost of maintaining the land is both the simplest and fairest solution. One must remember that for "Congress to increase allocation for these resources in their annual budget appropriation," this necessitates either an increase in the federal budget or a cut in another portion thereof. In either case, we are talking about tax revenue from every taxpayer in the United States, the vast majority of whom will never set foot in Arizona, much less Coronado National Forest. Why should taxpayers in New Hampshire, Georgia or Alaska be forced to subsidize our weekend recreation?
