Conservation finance links, November 15

by

Twice each month TPL’s Conservation Finance service publishes links to state and local conservation finance stories from around the nation.  This first posting after the election, includes stories on some of the measures voters faced on November 2.  Of the 35 measures on last-week’s ballots, 28 were approved, generating more than $2 billion in new conservation funding.  As always, TPL’s online LandVote database provides the best source of data on conservation finance measures since 1988.
