Jaeger Receives Support for Clean Water, Wildlife and Parks Fund

Posted: Updated:
The sponsoring committee working to create a Clean Water, Wildlife and Parks fund has delivered more than 41,000 signatures to the Secretary of State's office today.

Nearly 27,000 of those must be valid signatures in order for the amendment to be placed on the November ballot.

Al Jaeger now has until Sept. 8 to verify them.

Committee members say this is an important issue for them.

"As a small business owner, it's something that puts food on our table and gives us a way of life to raise our family in North Dakota and take advantage of a lot of the outdoor opportunities that already exist," says Mandan resident Holly Dickson. 

The amendment would also dedicate a small portion of the state's existing oil and gas extraction taxes to protect the state's clean water.
