Minnesota lawmakers are considering responses to water quality concerns in the southeastern part of the state.

Following EPA’s formal request that state agencies address nitrate contamination in eight counties, members of the House Agriculture Finance and Policy Committee proposed a $5 per acre property tax credit for land certified in the Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program.
