The conservation and recreation programs of the DNR are funded primarily by users of those programs through user fees, permits, and licenses, Proposal 06-1, if enacted in November by the Michigan electorate, precludes the Governor or the Legislature from diverting these recreational and conservation- related restricted funds to other state funds or programs. Proposal 06-1 will constitutionally protect the Game and Fish Protection Trust Funds, Recreation Improvement Fund, Recreational Snowmobile Trail Improvement Fund, Non-game Fish and Wildlife Trust Fund, Forest Recreation Fund, Game and Fish Protection Fund, Snowmobile registration Fee Fund, ORV Trail Improvement Fund, Safety Education Fund, State Park Improvement Fund, Michigan Harbor Development Fund, Marine Safety Fund and the Michigan State Waterways Fund. This proposal is the result of HJR Z which was passed unanimously by the legislature in 2004.
