The Legacy Amendment to the MN Constitution, passed by MN voters, increases the state sales tax by 3/8 of 1% from 2009- 2034. The arts and cultural heritage fund receives 19.75% to support the arts, arts education and arts access and to preserve MN's history and cultural heritage. The question initially asked was whether the SE MN region was receiving its arts equitable share based upon its regional sales tax revenues. As is often the case, research led to further questions for investigation. The Trust has completed the process of researching and has had its statistical findings reviewed by a statistician.  As a privately-funded, proprietary document, the Trust will present its findings to the appropriate stakeholders based upon its own timeline.
