State agencies: Meet at the park!

I have to admit this is a new one to me: The state administration backs off mandating that state agencies meet at parks. From the Charleston (W. Va.) Gazette:

    The Manchin administration appears to be backing off an April request that state agencies hold their meetings and conferences at state parks.

    State agencies are being encouraged “not to forget about state parks” as they look for places to meet, and to pick the location that best fits their needs at a good price, said Manchin spokeswoman Lara Ramsburg. “If you have three facilities with the same services, look at pricing, and pick the best deal for state taxpayers,” she said.

It sounds like something the administration said earlier got the area's conference centers in an uproar over unfair competition practices. It all sounds a little squirrelly to me!
