If you are referring to the constitutional amendment that would prevent the legislature from taking money that is supposed to go to state parks and using it for other needs, then yes, that amendment passed earlier this month.

Wonder why the first vote that passed years ago wasn't good enough?

Good question. In 2007, House Bill 12 was passed and signed by the governor. Evidently, being a non constitutional amendment, it was over turned by some legislature after it was passed. But the new funding measure is a constitutional amendment and can only be changed by a vote of the people.

Thank you for that clarification!.....Oldest trick in the book, and probably still laughing about that one!
