5/8: Don't Substitute Legacy Funds for Property Tax Payments!
In 2008, Minnesotans voted in favor of a constitutional provision to reserve Legacy funds (sales tax monies) for clean water, parks, habitat, and the arts. Now, despite this, the MN Legislature is trying to substitute these constitutionally dedicated funds for other purposes. One such attempt by the Legislature is to use Legacy funds in place of the state's "payment in lieu of taxes" program to pay for property taxes on any acquired lands. This is grossly unconstitutional.
Tell Governor Dayton: Please do not be a party to breaking faith with Minnesota voters. VETO legislation that substitutes Legacy funds to pay for property taxes.
