Environmentalists closer to having land buying amendment on ballot

Florida environmentalists are close to getting the number of signatures they need to put a land buying amendment on next year's ballot.

One third of every tax dollar from florida real estate deals goes into a trust fund.
The money is supposed to be used to buy land to conserve.
  
But each year lawmakers raid the trust fund and leave only a portion, if any, for land conservation.
  
The proposed "Land Legacy Amendment" would require the state to spend all the money on land and water conservation.
