STATE PARKS -- The public has until Tuesday, Jan. 7, to comment on a proposal to allow commercial advertising in the Washington state parks website.

At its next regular meeting on Jan. 23, the parks commission plans to approve a new Washington State Parks advertising policy to allow commercial advertising on digital and printed material, and to set criteria for any such advertising.

The draft advertising policy can be found online.

The proposed policy does not include commercial advertising in state parks, but only advertising on agency websites and select printed materials.

The public can comment online by Jan. 7. Comments will be given to the commission for consideration.
