About this Legislation
Chief Author

HF4124 is the Omnibus bill for Minnesota’s dedicated Clean Water, Land, and Legacy funding. It provides appropriations for the Outdoor Heritage Fund, the Clean Water Fund, the Parks and Trails Fund, and the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Approved by voters in 2008, the Legacy Amendment increased the state’s sales tax by three-eighths of one percent to fund projects across the state aimed at preserving Minnesota’s natural resources and celebrating the cultures of all the communities that call Minnesota home. Projects in the bill range from providing clean drinking water, increasing access to public parks and trails, managing invasive carp species in the Mississippi River, and much more.


The bill has passed the House and Senate and will be signed into law by Governor Walz.
