MSBA at the Capitol — Environment finance bill includes $500,000 for School Trust Lands swap

Chair Rep. Denny McNamara unveiled the House Omnibus Environment Finance Bill (HF 846) Tuesday in the House Environment and Natural Resources Policy and Finance Committee.

Rep. McNamara included $500,000 (school trust lands revenue) for the director of School Trust Lands to purchase and swap some of the School Trust Lands that are not generating any money.

The bill also reaffirmed that the director position would be placed in the Department of Administration.

We are still waiting for Gov. Mark Dayton to appoint a School Trust Lands director.
