Require subsequent oil and gas revenue from state-owned lands to go into the Natural Resources Trust Fund. Require at least 20% of Endowment Fund annual spending go toward State park improvement. Require at least 25% of Trust Fund annual spending go toward parks and public recreation areas and at least 25% toward land conservation. Should this proposal be adopted?

This proposed constitutional amendment would: Prohibit unreasonable searches or seizures of a person’s electronic data and electronic communications. Require a search warrant to access a person’s electronic data or electronic communications, under the same conditions currently required for the government to obtain a search warrant to search a person’s house or seize a person’s things.
