In 2002, eight million dollars from the State Waterways Fund was redirected into the State General Fund to help balance the budget.
Proposal 1 would restrict that from ever happening again. Other funds would be protected as well, including hunting and fishing licenses, snowmobile licenses and RV trail fees.
There is no organized opposition to Prop 1. The measure was overwhelmingly voted by the legislature to be put on the ballot... and Governor Granholm is expected to sign it if passed by voters.
