Money Watch: Nature Conservancy Writes Big Checks for Measure 76

Turf Battle

The Nature Conservancy contributed more than $1 million this week ($1,088,500 to be exact) to Measure 76, the November ballot measure that asks Oregon voters to make permanent the current practice of allocating 15 percent of state lottery proceeds to parks and wildlife habitat.

Although the measure faces no organized opposition, voters are historically skeptical of any efforts to amend the Oregon Constitution, as Measure 76 proposes to do. The Nature Conservancy is by far the largest contributor to the campaign which calls itself Oregonian for Parks, Water and Wildlife.
