MN Legislature is working out Agriculture and Broadband Budget

Brownfield News reports

A conference committee is working out differences in the Agriculture and Broadband Budget as the Minnesota Legislative Session hits the home stretch.

House Ag Committee Chair Samantha Vang tells Brownfield she and Senate Ag Chair Aric Putnam are aligned on much of the bill.

“The differences are just a matter of how much funding we put towards each of these issues, so I think those can be resolved very quickly and hopefully this week we get to see conference committee up for adoption.”

She calls the ag budget very robust.

Both House and Senate have budgeted $100 million for broadband; so this isn’t big news but nice to know it’s moving along.
