California State Park and Recreation Commission
The California State Park and Recreation Commission was created as the State Park Commission in 1927. The Commission has specific authorities and responsibilities which are defined in California law. Nine voting commissioners are appointed to staggered four-year terms. The governor appoints the voting members of the Commission; these appointments require Senate confirmation. The Speaker of the Assembly and the Senate Rules Committee each appoint one non-voting ex-officio member to the Commission.
