If you haven't seen Doug Smiths article here is a link. The Governor's budget plans to steal 1.2 million from the Boating fund. These funds were collected $5 at a time, each time we renewed our boat stickers. At least bank robbers have the backbone to walk into a Bank with a gun and ski mask, but the Governor can commit crimes of theft with impunity

shocked smiley shocked smiley Big surprise!

I'm not mad though. Most the people I know with boats have been sitting around letting this state pass unsustainable legislation at every turn of the road.

The article is wrong though... This is not unprecedented, in fact it happens all the time (gas tax,lotto money...etc). Face it, we have spending issues and we need to pay our debts. No matter what someone will end up mad.

I would like to see them repeal the pay increase that our legislators voted for themselves in 07'. wink smiley

We might have to move this one into the controversial forum...... Every time to government sees any money they can use as they see fit, you might as well consider it gone.

look at the clean water legacy act.

Just becuase they told you they were taking it for a reason does not mean they will spend it for that reason. That is why they put out thousand page bills and pass them in two days.

They put so much legal bs in that the average person has no clue whats going on. And then ask you to vote on it.

ALL THAT SAID. I don't care what party you support, minnesota has beeen using us outdoorsman for a source of revenue for longer then I have been on this planet and I'm sick of it. If they pass a bill under the assumption it will only benifit LAKES, LAND, and CONSERVATION. Then it should do just that. Not turn into a slush fund for watever they need at the time.

Think and research before you vote people that is all i ask. Just because it is sold to benefit us does not mean it really will.

P.S. If you make up you mind based on one biased article please don't vote on anything

Not the only fund abused. Look at your FICA ( social security) They have been stealing from it for years.
