A bill (HF3142 / SF3063) is making its way through the legislative process this session that would erode the definition of Minnesota State Parks. This bill allows all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) to be ridden within two state parks–something that has always been considered to be incompatible based on the definition of state parks set out in the Minnesota Outdoor Recreation Act.
Sen. Ruud is chair of the committee where this bill has been referred and she needs to know that there is opposition. Gov. Dayton has expressed his opposition to this bill and he needs to know our gratitude.
Here are some key points to consider when contacting Sen. Ruud and Gov. Dayton:
Email Sen. Ruud and Gov. Dayton by Sunday, Mar. 25.
