A news conference on Minnesota's Clean Water, Land and Legacy amendment is scheduled at 4 p.m. today at Davy Memorial Park in Moorhead, 210 8th St. N.

Bud Grant, Ron Schara and leaders representing "Sportsman Vote Yes" will discuss why Minnesota voters should pass the amendment, which appears on the November election ballot.

"Sportsmen Vote Yes" is a coalition of nearly 50 hunting and angling organizations statewide supporting the amendment, a news release stated.

If passed, the amendment would increase the sales tax rate by three-eighths of 1 percent on taxable sales from July 2009 until 2034.

Revenue would be used to protect natural resources such as drinking water, wetlands, prairies, forests, and fish and game and wildlife habitats. The funding would also help preserve arts and cultural heritage and support parks and trails.
