The Outdoor Recreation Resources Review Commission dealt with much of the study in terms of the traditional levels of government which supply facilities for public recreation, namely the federal, state and local levels. A major recommendation of the Commission was that the state assume a pivotal role in the problem of providing for the impending recreation demand. The report pointed out that the state is in a position to operate on a broader scale geographically and otherwise than is the local or municipal governing body, is sensitive to the needs of its citizens on a broad basis, and is in a position to correlate action and planning with the federal government.
