St. Cloud Senator’s Bill Awaits Governor’s Signature

ST. PAUL — If Governor Dayton signs it, an amendment to the Clean Water Land and Legacy bill would more equally distribute money to regional parks across the state.

Senator John Pederson of St. Cloud sponsored the measure. He says it is about leveling the playing field between outstate Minnesota and the Twin Cities Metro.

Pederson says it removes the local match provision where a quarter of the project’s funding needed to be raised before becoming eligible. It also removes a $500-thousand cap on projects. The seven county metro area weren’t subject to those provisions, but greater Minnesota projects were.
