Board in Support of Legislation for Volunteer Drivers

The board voted in support of legislation to protect the viability of volunteer driver programs in Minnesota.

Board Opposes Watershed Spending Requirement Legislation

The board voted to oppose legislation that establishes watershed district spending requirements by political regions or boundaries. The board’s concern in this matter is that this legislation could restrict watershed districts from spending outside of their area, and watershed districts need to work together to monitor and improve regional water quality; this legislation could limit that effort.
