This Constitutional Amendment would authorize the the use of 75% of state sales tax received from the sale of outdoor recreation equipment for the Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Fund (GOSF). The GOSF would be used for protecting and preserving conservation land. Local governments would be allowed to apply for grants and loans for greenspace initiatives should the resolution and its accompanying legislation (HB 332) pass.
