Amendments also allow reopen development of Mississippi Critical Area rules.
(Published Mar 8, 2013)
Amendments were added to SF 889 (Sen. John Marty, DFL – Roseville) that re-authorize the Department of Natural Resources to adopt new rules governing shoreland state-wide and covering the Mississippi River Critical Area, the land within 1000 feet of the river as it passes through the Twin Cities region. Both sets of rules had been previously authorized by the legislature, but were not completed within the statutory 18-month limit on legislatively-granted rule writing authority for state agencies. The renewed authority is exempted from that limit and has no expiration date.
The bill now goes to the State and Local Government Committee for further review.
