The Rock Island Endowment Fund legislation is on its way to the Governor. The language was amended to SB 196 that was filed by Senator Bernskoetter. This will allow donations to be collected for the development and maintenance of the trail if the donation is made to the Department of Natural Resources. This legislation also protects state revenue as the only money that can be spent on the project has to come from this fund. The state has the option of adding to the donations in the fund through general revenue if an appropriation is made in the budget.
