Florida voters in November will consider a constitutional amendment proposing regarding one-third of all annual real estate transaction taxes go toward environmental conservation, according to the SarasotaHerald-Tribune.

  The Water and Land Conservation amendment would pay for drinking water and natural resource protection projects. The money could raise about $10 billion over the next 20 years, though no new tax increase is included in the ballot language.
