32. Changing to NO on ALL
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 12:48 PM by Strawman
I was leaning yes on 1, but I've changed to a no since there really has not been any significant transfer of funds from park fees or hunting licenses, etc. away from the DNR to other programs, so there is really no need for this proposal. If that were to become common practice, I would be inclined to vote yes on a similar proposal in the future. As another poster pointed out, keeping the funds in the DNR budget could just mean that my park fees are off limits to some needed school program in a budget year where there is a severe pinch, but available for some development related project that serves a private interest. It doesn't guarantee that my park fees will go to that park.

Also, in general, if there is no compelling need for this proposal based on massive transfers of these funds away from their intended use, I'm skeptical why it was proposed.
