Last year’s session saw both houses of the legislature pass one of the most far-reaching environmental bills in recent memory, rolling back environmental policy and funding nearly across the board. Fortunately, Gov. Mark Dayton swiftly vetoed the original Environment Bill.
Unfortunately, many of the rollbacks to basic environmental protections in last year’s original vetoed bill are likely to re-appear in legislation this session.
We stand with Minnesotans from all walks of life who believe that clean and healthy rivers, lakes, streams and drinking water supplies must never be compromised for political gain.
FMR will continue to work hard to prevent further rollbacks and protect Minnesota's existing policies and programs that protect our natural resources.
Keep up to date
FMR will once again offer regular updates on key environment and water quality issues on our legislative updates blog. Check back regularly! Or sign up for Mississippi Messages to receive a monthly digest of FMR updates, volunteer and education events.
