In less than two weeks, the Minnesota Legislature will reconvene, and although the second half of the biennium is shorter, it will likely be another busy session. Because it is not a budget year, the Legislature will be focused primarily on the bonding bill and policy issues. For GMPT, we have several priorities for 2024. We would like to see more funding for the DNR’s local park and trails grant programs and will be pushing for the inclusion of such funds in the bonding bill.
We’d like to extend a big thank-you to everyone who attending the GMPT’s quarterly membership meeting on Aug. 17. We will be including a full write-up about the meeting in our August newsletter. However, for those who are interested, here are some of the materials from the meeting — including two park highlights, a legislative session wrap-up and tips for reaching out to your legislators:
Our next membership meeting will be held Oct. 19 at the community center in Monticello. We hope you’ll be able to join us!
