ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A dispute may resolved soon over using Legacy Amendment tax dollars help a tribe buy land on its own reservation.

The Fond du Lac Band is seeking $1.7 million to protect 440 acres near the St. Louis River, which include an 80-acre lake and 83 acres of wetlands. It's the first time a tribe has requested Legacy money to buy land within its reservation.
