Legacy Amendment Pays Dividends for Minnesota

A report released earlier this month by the University of Minnesota Extension Center for Community Vitality finds that the Legacy Amendment has generated a return of $1.95 for every dollar of Legacy funds invested in history programs and projects.

Today’s UpTake-The Week Ahead

Monday: Who gets the money from Minnesota’s Legacy Amendment sales tax? The Lessard-Sams council we heard so much about during the last Governors debate makes those decisions and is meeting this morning.   We’ll have this up live on livestream starting around 9am. Update: the Minnesota House is not providing video coverage of this meeting today. Public comment part of the hearing starts at 11:30am

10 AM the State canvassing board meets to certify the Primary election results.  This should be much less drama filled than the last time they met for the Coleman/Franken recount.
