This is a terrific article by the editorial board! Unfortunately we have the wrong leadership group in place. Guv Dayton reneged on his promise to provide 3 mm for AIS (peanuts in the grand scheme of things) this year while supporting hundreds of millions for the Vikings stadium and Mayo projects. We will need to wait for the next election cycle and hope that we get visionary and moderate leadership to look at maintaining precious Minnesota resources.

Thanks to the 2008 Legacy Amendment, Minnesota has a competitive edge over other areas - - - MUCH better use of the extra tax funds than art overpayments.

The vetoed AIS funding wouldn't have done a thing for the St.Louis River Project. What is doing good it this appropriation. (d) Lower St. Louis River Habitat Restoration $3,670,000 in the second year is to the commissioner of natural resources to restore habitat in the lower St. Louis River estuary. A list of proposed projects must be provided as part of the required accomplishment plan. This appropriation was cooperatively put together by the Outdoor Heritage Council and the 2012 legislature. It is a great example of people working together to ensure the Legacy money for fish and game habitat is spent for the benefit of all Minnesotans.

I would like to point-out that our own Minnesota Land Trust is playing a major, leading role in this effort.
