Gov. Corbett suggested Thursday that Pennsylvania's 117 state parks might be ripe for privatizing.
With a new gubernatorial commission to study privatization in the works, Corbett was asked what, besides the Liquor Control Board, might benefit from private-sector control. He replied: "Prison health care and running state parks."
Corbett, a former lifeguard, cited the lack of lifeguards at beaches and park pools.
"There are some places where we don't have any lifeguards in our state parks," he told reporters after a bill-signing event in Hershey, Pa. "If we privatize that, can we save a little money and have the lifeguards back?"
