Discover Pass change proposed

In response to complaints from state park users, the Legislature is considering bills that would allow a Discover Pass to be used with two vehicles.

The Discover Pass was instituted in July and charges park users either a $10 day use vehicle fee or a $30 annual vehicle fee. However, the fee currently applies to only one vehicle, which prompted complaints from people who have more than one car.

Bills were introduced in the state House (HB2152) and Senate (SB5977) last week to allow the Discover Pass to be used between two vehicles.

Sales of the Discover Pass have fallen short of expectations over the first several months; however, officials think numbers will increase as people learn about the Discover Pass.
