In 2008, a strong majority of Minnesotans voted to adopt the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment. One third of the state sales tax revenue derived through the Legacy Amendment is invested in clean water projects through the Clean Water Fund.
Every two years, Minnesota's nonpartisan Clean Water Council works with experts from across the state to craft detailed recommendations to the legislature on how to best invest the Clean Water Fund.
The Council’s FY18-19 CWF recommendations, totaling $220.514 million, reflect the priority of providing resources to on-the-ground actions that protect and restore our waters.
FMR and our partners will work closely with lawmakers to make that these recommendations are reflected in the legislatures final appropriations.
