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 asked, and yet to be answered, is whether the SE MN region is receiving its arts equitable share based upon its regional sales tax revenues. The Trust has completed the process of researching and writing a white paper to address this issue and determine answers for action. It is currently in draft form for review and will be presented upon completion of the final review. The Trust  acknowledges Allison Good for bringing her concerns to the Trust and allowing us the opportunity to investigate further for the benefit of Rochester and the SE MN region.
