This article addresses an amendment to Minnesota’s Constitution on the 2006 ballot, to direct a portion of the revenue from an existing tax on motor vehicles sales to public transit transit purposes. The author asks if this dedicated-fund clause belongs in a constitution. The author explores the influence of traditions, values, and economic or political compromises on the issue.
