CVSC supported this bill and it did not pass.

Senators Campsen and Davis filed this bill to support land protection by reallocating a portion of the sales tax revenue generated by sporting goods stores to a fund dedicated to capital improvements of public lands such as parks and wildlife management areas. It would require that an amount equal to the annual general fund portion of sales tax revenue derived from sporting goods stores be appropriated for capital improvements on state-owned parks, forests, wildlife management areas, and heritage preserves.
