The Legislative Coordinating Commission (LCC) serves as the umbrella organization for legislative commissions, joint agencies, and other boards for the Legislature. One responsibility of the LCC is to maintain a web site that shows the public how revenues from the Legacy Amendment and the Environment and Natural Resource Trust Fund are spent. LCC staff work with 25 or so agencies that receive $300 million annually through the Legacy amendment to show citizens where the money goes. The web site is at http://www.legacy.leg.mn/. The interactive map for the website that lets Minnesotans find projects near where they live, or want to explore can be found at this link: http://www.legacy.leg.mn/map.html.
