The legislature finds that all Minnesotans share the responsibility to ensure wise stewardship
of the state's environment and natural resources for the benefit of current citizens and future
generations. Proper management of the state's environment and natural resources includes and
requires foresight, planning, and long-term activities that allow the state to preserve its high
quality environment and provides for wise use of its natural resources. The legislature also finds
that to undertake such activities properly, a long-term, consistent, and stable source of funding
must be provided.
