Minnesota’s Conservation Amendment Becoming Contentious

Doug Smith: War of words over constitutional amendment for conservation | StarTribune.com

Wonderful!   Ever since this state constitutional measure passed back in 2008 I've been highly skeptical of the great conservation benefits the special interest groups promised us from this expansive sales tax measure.   Now, less than six months into the new tax law, we learn how several lawmakers are simply "licking their proverbial chops" in an attempt to use the monies for creative purposes other than those for which many intended (toward fish and wildlife projects).   This news surprises us how?   After all, we should have learned long ago not to trust politicians whenever money is involved.
