MN House & Senate rewrite Legacy and undercut Clean Water Fund recommendations.

A pair of bills advanced in the House and Senate this week that re-write appropriations for the State’s Clean Water Fund. These bills:

  • Undermine the Clean Water Council’s recommendations;
  • Violate the Legislature’s 2015 promise to taxpayers on buffer funding; and
  • Reduce or eliminate funding for drinking water, agricultural conservation, water monitoring and other core clean water programs.

Clean Water Fund bill brought forward in the House

FMR strongly supports a bill introduced by Rep. Paul Torkelson (R – Hanska) to allocate the Minnesota’s Clean Water Fund (Legacy Amendment) money as recommended by the state’s 28-member Clean Water Council. FMR applauds Rep. Torkelson for his leadership on this issue, and looks forward to working with him to help HF 1731 earn Gov. Mark Dayton’s signature.
