Dear Minnesota Lawmakers,
The voters approved the Legacy Fund to "protect drinking water sources; to protect, enhance, and restore wetlands, prairies, forests, and fish, game, and wildlife habitat; to preserve arts and cultural heritage; to support parks and trails; and to protect, enhance, and restore lakes, rivers, streams, and groundwater."
It is beyond a stretch to think that a private corporation such as the Minnesota Vikings could be included in this definition.
It would be a violation of the amendment, as approved by voters, to divert funds to a project that will benefit a small sector of the population.
It is furthermore a violation of the public trust to be diverting any public money to private interests such as sports franchises.
If you want to waste public money on a stadium, let the voters weigh-in.
