An initiated measure to dedicate a small portion of North Dakota’s oil tax revenue to conservation either is unnecessary or essential depending on who’s talking, attendees at a discussion on Measure 5 heard Monday night in the Manvel Community Center. Mark Watne, president of the North Dakota Farmers Union, and Eric Lindstrom, public affairs and Farm Bill specialist for Ducks Unlimited in Bismarck, made their cases for voting down or approving the measure during a discussion held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Grand Forks County Farmers Union. About 60 people, mostly Farmers Union members, attended. Also known as the Clean Water, Wildlife and Parks Amendment, Measure 5 would constitutionally dedicate 5 percent of North Dakota’s oil extraction tax annually and direct it to a conservation fund for the next 25 years.
