March 14, 2019

Sec. Mike Naig spoke to the Senate Natural Resources and Environment Committee on March 12. He discussed the sixth anniversary of the Nutrient Reduction Strategy, funding for various projects, and agricultural and urban infrastructure. Sec. Naig mentioned the department is attempting to progress at a rate they never have before. They are also working toward a partnership approach to their conservation efforts–working with landowners and communities without expanding the capacity of the department. Sec. Naig also stated that while they are investing state dollars, private donations are also crucial. For more information about the secretary’s remarks, please contact Drew Wynes.
