Swedzinski: More time to comment on proposed nitrogen rule

Friday, July 27, 2018


GHENT – Rep. Chris Swedzinski, R-Ghent, urges local citizens to take advantage of an extended window for submitting written comments on proposed regulatory changes for the use of nitrogen fertilizer in Minnesota.

The submission period has been extended to Aug. 15, approximately two weeks later than originally scheduled.

“It is good citizens have some extra time to lodge their input, but now we need to make it count,” Swedzinski said. “The Dayton Administration has not done enough to include citizens in the rulemaking process on everything from buffer strips to enhanced mowing regulations, nitrates and beyond. My hope is that people take advantage of this opportunity to voice themselves on the nitrate issue so we can work to build consensus and choose the best path for the long term.”
