The Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR), a 17-member group made up of legislators and citizens, is hosting two events in the Morris area to hear from Minnesotans what issues need funding most from the state’s Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund (ENRTF). The events are part of LCCMR’s 2019 strategic planning process, which will guide funding decisions for special environment and natural resources projects for the next six years.
On Wednesday, LCCMR will be hosting Food for Thought from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Oyate Hall in the Student Center at the University of Minnesota – Morris. Members of the public are invited to tell state decision-makers what environmental issues they believe need funding, eat milk and cookies, and enter to win prizes – including a Klean Kanteen.
On Thursday, join LCCMR members for Coffee & Conversation at Common Cup Coffeehouse from 7 to 8 a.m. The public may let LCCMR members know what natural resources issues are important and need funding in Minnesota over a cup of coffee. Since 1991, approximately $697 million from the ENRTF has been spent on over 1,700 projects that protect and enhance Minnesota’s environment and natural resources in every county of the state.
