I read with great interest the recent letter from Steve Adair and Naomi Thorson about their interpretation of the Clean Water, Wildlife and Parks Amendment. It included several fundamentally flawed assumptions that need to be corrected. Among them: -- That this is an opportunity to invest “a small percentage” of the state’s revenue into the conservation fund that would be created through their amendment. There’s nothing small about it. Five percent of North Dakota’s oil extraction tax would go into the fund, which means between $300 and $400 million a biennium, or $3 million a week.
