Here's how the money would be split if voters adopt a constitutional amendment raising the state sales tax for outdoors and arts programs.
OUTDOOR HERITAGE FUND: 33 percent for restoring, protecting and enhancing wetlands, prairies, forests and habitat for game, fish and wildlife.
CLEAN WATER FUND: 33 percent toward improving water quality in lakes, rivers and streams with at least 5 percent to protect drinking water sources.
PARKS AND TRAILS FUND: 14.25 percent to support parks and trails of regional and statewide significance.
ARTS AND CULTURAL HERITAGE FUND: 19.75 percent to further arts, arts education and arts access and to preserve the state's history and cultural heritage.
