No Deal Yet on Minnesota Disaster Relief

Minnesota lawmakers could not reach an agreement on a drought relief package before leaving for spring break. Now, lawmakers from both chambers will meet in conference when they return to St. Paul on April 19. Minnesota House Agriculture Finance and Policy Committee Chairman Mike Sundin says the differences will be ironed out. “We’ll talk about how much money will go to agriculture and how much will go to the Department of Natural Resources.” Representative Deb Kiel says livestock producers needed this help a long time ago. “It’s really important for us to make sure it happens.”
