E-M:/ FW: Absentee Voters Remember to Vote YES on Proposal 2!



vote yes on proposal 2!!!

Vote Yes on 2 for Michigan's parks, lakes and wildlife

Proposal 2 provides more funding for:


  • Outdoor recreation
  • Conservation
  • Local parks
  • Michigan's State Park System
  • Emergency Needs for Veterans

 


PROPOSAL 2 improves the way our state's permanent and endowment funds are invested.

On Aug. 6th, voters can allow the following funds to be invested as provided by law:


        MI Natural Resources Trust Fund

        MI State Parks Endowment Fund

        Veterans Trust Fund

        Game and Fish Protection Fund

        Nongame Fish and Wildlife Fund

        MI Civilian Conservation Corps Endowment Fund


Proposal 2 DOES NOT RAISE TAXES and increases the amount of money available for important projects undertaken by these funds.

 

 


Proposal 2 increases allowed spending for state parks, local parks and outdoor recreation

  • Increases the cap on Natural Resources Trust Fund from $400 to $500 million
  • Continues annual expenditures of up to 33 1/3% of Trust Fund royalties
  • Allows State Parks Endowment Fund spending to include interest and earnings & up to 50% of the funds received from Trust Fund 

  


OVER $540 MILLION HAS BEEN SPENT ON 1,290 PROJECTS IN EVERY COUNTY

Without Proposal 2, funding from the Natural Resources Trust Fund will be reduced by $15 million.  That means millions less for recreational projects and the purchase of environmentally sensitive lands.  That's why Proposal 2 has no opposition. 

Help us get out the vote, and encourage others to VOTE YES ON 2 ON AUGUST 6TH!
