September 17, 2020 - Author: Eric Walcott

The proposal would amend the Michigan Constitution to change certain restrictions governing Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund recreation project funding and to provide for additional revenue to be credited to the fund under certain conditions. It would also add an expenditure requirement for the Michigan State Parks Endowment Fund each year.

A “yes” vote supports making changes to how revenue in the state’s park-related funds can be spent, including 1) making projects to renovate recreational facilities eligible for grants, 2) allowing increased funds to be spent on park development and renovation, and 3) removing the cap on the size of the Natural Resources Trust Fund.

A “no” vote opposes making changes to how revenue in the state’s park-related funds can be spent, including 1) continuing to prohibit projects to renovate recreational facilities from receiving grants, 2) continuing to limit the percentage of funds spent on park development and renovation, and 3) keeping the cap on the size of the Natural Resources Trust Fund.
