Outdoors, arts amendment backers declare victory
ST. PAUL - Supporters of a proposal to raise taxes to fund outdoors and arts programs celebrated victory early this morning.
With most voted counted, 55.7 percent of Minnesota's voters had supported a constitutional amendment to raise the state sales tax 0.375 percent to fund outdoors and arts programs.
Amendment supporter Steve Morse said Minnesotans sent a message that even in tough economic times, they "protect and value their natural resources."
