Minnesota Invasive Species Fight is Funded by New Law
Dozens of new laws passed by the Minnesota State Legislature kick in Monday, July 1. Among them is a $16 million increase in the fight against aquatic invasive species

Nearly $16 million to fight the spread of invasive species across Minnesota and a water quality certification program are two key provisions of the omnibus environment, natural resources and agriculture finance and policy law.

The invasive species money is to be used for management, public awareness, assessment research and inspections to curb the spread of invasive plants and animals on land and in the water.

This appropriation is one of dozens included in the law, which funds and gives direction to hundreds of programs throughout the state.
The law appropriates $702.1 million for environment and natural resources programs and another $81.3 million for agriculture programs.
A $38.16 million appropriation will fund 46 natural resources projects recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources.

Nearly one-quarter of the money will go to the University of Minnesota’s Aquatic Invasive Species Center – $4.35 million in fiscal year 2014 and the same amount in fiscal year 2015.
