Group says no to Measure 5
North Dakota Farm Bureau has joined a variety of other groups, including North Dakota Farmers Union, and the North Dakota School Boards Association, to name just a few, in an effort to defeat Measure 5.
The North Dakotans for Common Sense Conservation Coalition is committed to responsible conservation and stewardship of our land and wildlife. The group supports common-sense conservation that develops and enhances North Dakota’s rich heritage while embracing our exciting future.
Out-of-state special interest groups have funded the effort to get the initiated Clean Water, Wildlife and Parks Amendment on the general election ballot in November 2014. Measure 5 seeks to dedicate 5 percent of North Dakota's revenue from its oil extraction tax to a new conservation fund overseen by a 13-member advisory board.
