  2. Proposal 20-2

Proposal 20-1 is a proposed constitutional amendment to allow money from oil and gas mining on state-owned lands to continue to be collected in state funds for land protection and creation and maintenance of parks, nature areas, and public recreation facilities; and to describe how money in those state funds can be spent

This proposed constitutional amendment would:

  • Allow the State Parks Endowment Fund to continue receiving money from sales of oil and gas from state-owned lands to improve, maintain and purchase land for State parks, and for Fund administration, until its balance reaches $800,000,000
  • Require subsequent oil and gas revenue from state-owned lands to go into the Natural Resources Trust Fund
  • Require at least 20% of Endowment Fund annual spending go toward State park improvement
  • Require at least 25% of Trust Fund annual spending go toward parks and public recreation areas and at least 25% toward land conservation
