MONTGOMERY, AL (AP) -
Alabama voters will decide on Nov. 6 whether
to continue a 20-year-old program that has allowed the state to buy
220,000 acres of public land to be used for hunting, fishing, birding
and other activities.
It's the second time
Alabama residents have been asked to vote on Forever Wild. The first was
in 1992, when voters authorized the state to buy wilderness lands.
Forever Wild was approved
with 83% of votes in the 1992 referendum. It uses earnings from oil and
gas revenue in the Alabama Trust Fund and does not take funds from the
General Fund or education budgets. Former state conservation
commissioner Barnett Lawley said the program has allowed the state to
buy lands for uses ranging from birding to field dog competitions.
