Instead of appealing to we the people in Texas to make up money shortcomings, Texas Parks and Wildlife should be talking to Gov. Rick Perry and Texas Republicans.
We can start with putting 100 percent of the fees from hunting and fishing licenses into TPWD funding. That might force the Lege to get more serious about fixing the franchise tax and other things.
We need to resist such "smiley-faced dunning" as TPWD proposes, especially since, after 17 years of GOP gubernatorial control, its leadership is all Republican anyway.
So, TPWD, look in the partisan mirror.
