The Legacy Amendment

November 30, 2011

Our evaluation was a general assessment of how the 2008 Legacy Amendment to the Minnesota Constitution has been implemented. We identify four “ongoing concerns” related to: (1) complying with the amendment’s requirement that Legacy money not be used to substitute for “traditional” sources of funding; (2) limiting the use of Legacy money for administrative costs; (3) ensuring that conflict of interest concerns are adequately addressed; and (4) ensuring that the use of Legacy money will achieve the outcomes intended by the Legacy Amendment.
