Rep. Mary Murphy, DFL-Hermantown, urges lawmakers to support a nearly $400 million outdoors and arts spending package on the last day of the 2009 legislative session. The funding, which will come from a new statewide sales tax increase voters approved last year, was the highlight of outdoors and environment issues lawmakers dealt with this year.
